Random font changes
« on: March 22, 2010, 11:18:04 am »
I've noticed while maneuvering around the site that occasionally, the font will switch back and forth between the usual, smaller font to a large, more space-consuming font. Does this happen to anyone else, and does anyone know why this is?

It's not expected behaviour, can you tell me what browser/OS you're using, and possibly get a screenshot of this behaviour?

It just started happening to me for the first time today, so I got a screenshot of it.


Running Firefox 3.6, Windows XP.  Though it might be something with my connection, it displays normally at home and this is one of the first times I've accessed the updated forums from school (same laptop).

Yes here's the differences:

Here's normally:


And here's what occasionally happens:


And I'm using the latest firefox, if that helps.

Check your zoom level next time this happens, please.

Top menu --> View --> Zoom --> Reset.

That's all the more help I can give you. I hope that's not the problem, but it's worth putting my two sense in to try to save some trouble here.

Firefox 3.5.7

Not an addition, just offering an example of the above points possible cause.

Check your zoom level next time this happens, please.

Check my pic.  The avatar, time/date, etc. are the right size, but everything from "Subject/Started By" on is double-sized.

Zoom is able to only affect fonts and/or text.

...

It seems that, in the forementioned zoom menu, it is possible to zoom text only. Again, I maintain my suggestion - check your zoom next time this happens. Worst that happens is I'm wrong.

Visual on the menu, please adjust for your own operating system:

Edit: Fix'd even moar.

Enrique's right, this has nothing to do with zooming.  I have Firefox configured for text-only zoom, and while not all text zooms that way, more of the text in Enrique's screenshot would have.

I'm in the process of testing this, but it may take awhile, because I haven't been able to replicate the problem yet.  I'll keep this updated if/when I find anything.

I wasn't able to replicate this problem so if anyone else encounters it, please post the following information:

-Operating system and browser, including the specific browser version
-A full list of any plugins/extensions installed.
-A list of forum pages that the problem occurs on.
