Sometimes, the text is REALLY abnormally big.

It happens randomly, one time I'll go to the website and the text will be normal, other times it is SUPER big.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to website.
2. Check if text is big.
3. Close Mozilla
4. Go to website again.

If it is just the text of the site try view -> zoom -> normal (keyboard shortcut ctrl + 0). If this fixes the problem the bug is invalid Firefox now remembers the zoom level for sites.

I believe you mean:

View -> Zoom -> Reset
(As this is shortcut Ctrl+0, and sounds like what you mean)

and no, this does not fix the problem.

The problem also occurs sometimes, but not other times (Probably about 75% on Icanhascheezburger and 50% or so on

I can not confirm this on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1a2pre) Gecko/2008080403 Minefield/3.1a2pre.
Where is this text that is abnormally big?

Ok, on my Desktop I couldn't get it to happen with 3.1a1, so I upgraded to the newest 3.1a2 and immediately, the problem happened on Newegg.

On the desktop, the problem happens EVERY time I type in the url and every other time when I click a link to get to my location. (At Icanhascheezburger)

At newegg, the problem happens EVERY time on the main page UNLESS I go in one page, then press the back button. When I press the back button, the problem goes away until I return to the page via refresh,etc.

My desktop dual boots XP and Vista, I am going to try the Vista side to see if I get the same results.
Ok, I have been testing with Vista and getting WORKSFORME, so we will see how yours does.

3.1a2 does.
