Browser Zoom Bug?
« on: January 20, 2013, 01:25:05 am »
The site seems sometimes to not auto fit to my browser size, is this normal? Or is this a bug? Or is it just my browser?
Screenshot:
Hope the image displays right...
Note: Strange thing is, it loads correct, then expands to where I need to scroll back over just to see type. Also cuts off the edit button.

I will sometimes have my browser zoom very far in, but all I do is refresh the page and it fixes the problem.

I am however on my iPod when this happens, it's never happened to me on my computer.

You're talking about completely different issues.

Midnight:  This isn't a browser zoom issue at all, it's a page width issue, and not one I've ever seen.  I don't have Google Chrome handy to test with, but I'll take a look and see if I can replicate it.  I'm curious if that toolbar has something to do with it, since it's rendering within the browser window, try disabling it and see if that fixes it.

Gaz:  This is something mobile devices do naturally, especially if you double-tap something on the page.  Does pinch-zooming out not fix it?

No, I have to refresh the page in order for it to zoom out, I do however think its an issue with my iPod, my iPod has been acting up lately, but it only does this on FT.

I'll figure it out, it's not a big issue.

Does it zoom in automatically and stay there?  Or does it only get stuck that way after you've intentionally zoomed in?

Yes it zooms in automatically and it refuses to zoom out unless I refresh the page.

With a small bit of testing, I found out a few things.
1. Seems windows native (never seems to do this using chrome on Ubuntu 12.04 or osx 10.8 )
2. Toolbar caused it to be more common ( after I removed the toolbar it still occurred, but very rarely.
