New browser excessively zoomed-in



  • I have tried the new browser. I is zoomed in to such extent that I can only read a few words. There seems to be no way to zoom out even after changing the font size.

    Has anyone experienced the same problem?



  • @ubuntoutou That sounds like the old browser next issue. This is Morph browser you are refering too. That is the only one you should have on OTA 5. What device are you using.



  • @ubuntoutou I have on some websites, not all , just a few. Unable to fix it as well.



  • This is a known issue. AFAIK the OTA6 should fix all these issues.



  • @malditobastardo looking forward to it.



  • Same for me, only on few websites. Also, I cannot play some videos, i get an error message that adobe flash is missing.



  • Hello fellas...
    I installed UT 16.04 and on some pages I'm experiencing this excessive zoom bug.

    In morph browser issue tracker, the issue #12 is about this bug, and is closed as solved.

    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Thanks

    Device: FP2
    OS: Ubuntu 16.04 (2018-W46)

    It says, that there is not enough space in /var/cache/apt/archives/ for upgrades, so the pull request is not installed and I can't test it.

    However, it's very nice to have a manual zoom feature in browser, but this is not the solution for this problem. Only a workaround. The old browser in 15.04 (oxide?) got the scaling right, without manual zoom. So it's a regression. Also I made myself a memrise webapp, which also suffers from the zooming bug and I doubt, that there is the manual resize button.

    They told, that the zooming bug is fixed, but for me is clearly not. So I think, that an issue is needed to be opened (reopened). I came here, to hear you thoughts on opening an issue.



  • I've opened an issue in morph-browser repository on github. Please, confirm the bug or add another site(s) you find that are affected. Thanks.



  • I have the same issue on https://www.three.co.uk/New_My3/My3_Home
    It's a pain as I can't top up from there on my phone.



  • My own website http://www.totalsonic.net is zoomed in slightly too much with Morph - but it displays correctly sized in Android (in both mobile versions of Chrome and Firefox) and in the old UT Oxide based browser.

    Best regards,

  • I used the private chat in the forum, on pro5, keyboard was off the screen in portrait
    I went to an Android tablet ,and still enlarge the note to full screen , and the icon for the person I was sending to was over the send button.
    ? Is this related somehow

    Can you add your experience to github issue, please? If for some reason you can't, notice me, I will add it myself. Thank you.
