    I just added the pinch to zoom feature to this article. With that added in, there isn't really a reason for the Zoom in and out of websites on Firefox for Android article. I think the link can be removed, and the article could possibly be removed unless we want to keep it for problems later. I still think that pinch to zoom should be included. Those that won't figure it out will learn it right out of the gate, and perhaps eliminate a Support question later.

    This is a really nice addition but I think it's out of scope for this article. The sections in this article are supposed to be brief and link to the full article for details. In this case there is some important information in the Zoom in and out of websites on Firefox for Android about text reflow and the more difficult (than double-tap) to use, pinch to zoom. Maybe you can work that language into the other article?

    I may not agree with your rejection, but I do see your point. I have big fingers so I use pinch to zoom quite a bit to tap links in websites. That's why I wanted to put that section here.

    I added the same little bit to How do I zoom in and out of a website. I also reformatted the section a little by using bullet lists to make the instructions stand out.
