    Dear WP team,

    A while ago I made the font-size in CSS bigger with firebug in firefox. It worked fine. However I didn't know that in other browsers such IE and Chrome the font-size hadn't changed.This resulted in unequal spacing display between FF and IE,Chrome. So I installed firebug in chrome and
    IE 8 has its own developer tools. So I changed the font-size is showed below from 100.1% to 101.1% which work fine.

    body {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #777777;
    color: #333333;
    font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
    font-size: 100.1%;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    text-align: center;
    }

    However when I changed to another page on my blog and came back to the first one the changes were gone and back to the old settings.
    How can you make IE and chrome remember the font-size changes?

    Waiting for your answer,
    Whitelight

    Firebug does not amend any actual files., It simply allows you test out amendments in your browser. As soon as you refresh the page, the "changes" are lost/ You need to actually edit your theme's CSS - possibly via a child theme.
