Zoom out factor is too restrictive.
Zoom out factor is too restrictive.: Firefox for Android renders some complex sites designed for Desktop poorly, Feedly (https://feedly.com/) for example. The problem is there just too many things should be displayed but I cannot zoom out freely because Firefox doesn't allow me to zoom out that much. I've set
zoom.minPercent = 1 browser.ui.zoom.force-user-scalable = true
However, it seems there are other rules that prevent me zoom out more, it is far from the 1%. The attached images are the smallest zoom factor Firefox allowed. I'm using OnePlus One, which has a 5.5" 1080p display.
Please relax the zoom factor if you cannot render all websites well.
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:36.0) Gecko/36.0 Firefox/36.0
Opps, the mobile version cannot upload images.
Thanks for the excellent screenshots and detective work.
- I would file a support request with Feedly first.
- If Feedly works well with other mobile browsers like Chrome and Safari then it's probably a web compatibility issue with Feedly and then you can file a bug at webcompat.com
IMO, this is Firefox's problem. Feedly is just ONE of the websites in this category, but it isn't the only one. No one could fix all websites around the worlds, but you can fix your browser. Furthermore, I think Firefox has rendered it correctly so the website doesn't have to be modified, the only thing I requested here is the chance to zoom out more.
hi again jackieku:
"IMO, this is Firefox's problem. Feedly is just ONE of the websites in this category, but it isn't the only one."
1. I guess this means Feedly works fine in Chrome and other browsers?
True! It may be a Firefox bug but as there are hundreds of sites that are don't conform to web standards (see webcompat.com again for thousands) and therefore don't work then it's also possible it's a feedly bug :-) !
2. Anyhow I'll check it out because RSS readers are a fun thing for me to play with. (I use theoldreader.com to read about 500 RSS feeds a day)
