In Chrome, the text auto resizes depending on my tablet orientation. It doesn't seem to work (as well)? in Firefox. Is there a way to make this work better?


In Chrome on nexus 10, auto resize of text depending on orientation works very well.

On Firefox for Android, it does not work as well: my text is too small to read on many web sites. I do not know if this feature even exists?

In landscape mode, everything looks fine, but the text does not get resized in portrait mode so it's too small to read.

Is there an option i've missed or is this a feature request?

You can enlarge part of the screen by dragging your fingertips apart, can you not?

There is a resize text on zoom option in the settings. Though we are still working on getting it to do a better job of reformatting text.

Question owner

yes you can pinch drag the screen to enlarge it, but that's not the point. That should be considered as an inelegant workaround.

The point is that the text should try to auto resize itself to be a readable point size depending on the orientation of the device.

Chrome handles this nicely, but unfortunately Firefox does not, and I really wish it would.
