Easy Read not changing anything

When I click the + or - nothing happens. Is there some setting I need to change somewhere? I've tried this on any number of pages including many on iconico.com

It should work just fine Dan! PLease check that you have javascript enabled, perhapse you have another piece of software that's blocking it?

JS is enabled -- I use lots of favelets. Any thoughts on what could be blocking it?

I'm very sorry but I really don't know the cause. I assume you've tried a reinstall of the software.

Please forgive me for butting in.
Maybe I missed something, but what operating system / version and browser/version are being used when EasyReader is failing to work?
Also, I am running Windows 98SE, Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 [I had to upgrade from Win98 to Win98SE before I could upgrade from IE5 to IE6], and have not yet installed EasyReader. I have been noticing for some time now the increasing prevalence of pages that 'disable' IE's View|Text Size|... controls, and have been assuming that is due to the use of CSS font specifications, but haven't known enough to verify that. Is EasyReader supposed to work on those pages?
Thank you --

Actually the point of EasyRead is specifically to get around those pages that do block the text size changes. EasyRead also zooms the entire page, including all layout and graphics, instead of simply increasing the font size which often breaks layout.

EasyRead should work on all windows systems with javascript enabled on IE5 or later, although we recommend using IE6. We do get occasional emails with people having problems and they are usually because of third party software that blocks EasyRead from executing Javascript. The vast majority of our uses seem to be ok. As EasyRead is free software we don't test on every single system configuration, and with browser plugins there are always systems which for whatever reason do not work.
