Zoom out factor is too restrictive.

Posted

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.

Hi jackieku:

Thanks for the excellent screenshots and detective work.

This sounds to me like a problem with feedly. Sounds like feedly should modify their website design and HTML and CSS and Javascript so it works well with mobile phones with large screens like the Note 4 and the OnePlusOne.

  1. I would file a support request with Feedly first.
  2. 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

Cheers!

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:

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)

Cheers!
