How to adjust your browser's zoom or font size

When viewing Buffer on the web, we recommend making sure your browser's zoom settings are set to 100%. If the zoom settings are set to something different, it can impact core functions of the dashboard, such as the ability to scroll through your queue and see posts scheduled further out into the future. 

However, adjusting the zoom size within your browser could also impact the readability of the text on screen, so we've also included steps to adjust your browser's font below.
