The font size I am getting for ELU is too small. I do not recall that it was like this before. Have I somehow made a change to my profile that will reduce the size?

The font size for ELU is smaller not only that other SE sites, but smaller than ELU meta. Samples:

This is definitely a browser setting. It's not part of your Stack Exchange or ELU profile.

Chrome shows this behaviour. If you zoom by using Ctrl-mousewheel, that zoom is set for that site, on any tab in the browser. Since all sites (including meta sites) have their own URL, you can set different sizes for any site. It looks like you have set a size of less than 100% for ELU Main, which will affect only that site.

Other browsers may behave in a similar fashion.

    Ctrl-0 (Windows) or Cmd-0 (Mac) will resize to the default more quickly.

    To clarify choster's comment, it is '0' (numerical zero), not 'o' (alphabet 'O').
