I recently installed latest Firefox for Android from Play store and the pages are usually rendered in a very tiny, unreadable font. I have Extra Large text size in Settings - Display, and the checkbox for Request desktop site is off. None of them have helped to increase font size. If I pinch out, the entire document is zoomed, so I'd have to pan left and right to read the whole line, and that does not help either. I'll appreciate a hint to make pages render in larger font sizes, like in less characters per line.

Hi kadm, Where it is available, does Reader Mode help at all?

Thanks guigs for your suggestion, it helps to some extent, as it defaults to a font size one point larger than the non-reader-mode version. But it's far from being comfortable to read and Reader Mode still zooms the entire page (creating horizontal scrolling) rather than increasing the font size and reflowing the text as the desktop version.

Ah, that + and - inside the Aa panel were what I was looking for. I'm so glad I can keep this browser. Thanks pals!

I have the opposite problem. The pages are too zoomed in.

When, for example visiting youtube.com , the site is displayed much more zoomed in than the same page on the built in chrome-browser.

This apparently puts the size juuuust at the very breaking point where the sidebar is hidden, which causes it to be shown/hidden randomly at each page-load.

I have set text size to "tiny" which is as far as it goes. But the pages are still to big.

An also, the pages doesn't seem to re-flow properly when i turn the screen, so i have to adjust the zoom every time i go between landscape/portrait.

The pages are rendered perfectly in chrome, without any fiddling with fontsize or any other settings.

Im using a lenovo tablet, which has a 1920x1200-screen, and is maxed out at Android 4.4.2. Im testing on the current latest chrome and Firefox.

Its a factory clean install plus all available updates applied, and pretty much just those 2 browsers installed.
