Windows 7: Fonts in certain screens are squashed

Fonts in certain screens are squashed

Hello members - this is my first posting here and I am truly hopeful of some serious help. I am having trouble, especially in ebay. The text is being not leaving a space between the lines of text which means it is getting squashed into the line of text below it.

Hope someone can help!

What browser (and version) are you using?

Can you please post a screenshot of this situation? A picture's worth 1000 words, and seeing exactly what you're describing would be very helpful.

Is this a laptop screen or desktop monitor?

What browser are you using... IE, Firefox, Chrome, etc.? Are you using an add-on, such as NoSquint, to control zoom in/out by specific site URL?

Do you have View -> Zoom changed for these sites?

Do you have your Windows desktop properties configured to show text at larger than 100%? E.g. 125%, 150%, etc.?
