    I just logged on to my site this morning,, in Safari and noticed the menu text size has become larger since yesterday. For some reason, it appears larger in Safari and “normal” in Firefox. This affects the spacing of the text on Safari and it shifts below the white menu border into the border colour surrounding the slider.

    How can I adjust the size of the font so it only affects Safari and not Firefox or Explorer?

    Thanks in advance.



    Firstly, I’m gettting a Database Connection error on your site, this is probably because Bluehost put too many sites on their shared hosting…

    Can you reset the text size of the browser back to default (Cmd + 0 on a Mac / Ctrl + 0 on Windows) to ensure that this isn’t causing the problem. I’ll check the site later to see if this is a problem within the site.



    Hi James,

    I don’t understand what to do about the Database Connection error. Should I contact Bluehost? What should I ask them? Subscribe to another hosting provider?

    I reset the text size by pressing Cmd + 0 on a Mac, and the text is still an issue on Safari; the problem is not resolved.

    Is there a way to change the text size for Safari only?



    1) The website is working for me now (it takes some time to load though). As far as I know Bluehost is worth what it costs per month (and obviously that’s not much).

    2) I can’t reproduce the error on Win7 with Safari, Chrome, Firefox, IE and Opera. Safari doesn’t offer “conditional tags” so it’s not possible to change the font size for safari only (or only with some js hacks or browser request/php hacks).


    okay, thanks. I would like to change from Bluehost to another hosting provider. is there one that you would recommend?


    I can recommend All-inkl: I use it for my website and also Kriesi uses their service. I couldn’t find an English version of the website though :(
