Text appearing too large

Posted

Hello all,

I just downloaded the latest version of the Firefox from playstore. It's really great but on websites some text appearing over large than other text.

What's the problem and how can I rectify it.

I am not using any add-on. My device is HTC Desire X

Thank you

Chosen solution

  • Open Firefox for Android.
  • Tap the 3 dot button in the upper right
  • Tap on settings
  • Tap on Text Size
  • Tap the small A twice to make text the smallest setting
  • Tap Set

This will only take affect on new tabs.

This will disable Firefox for Android's Font Inflation which attempts to make text on desktop websites readable on a mobile device. This is imperfect and sometimes leads to varying text sizes on a page.

Hello,

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

Further information can be found in the Reset Firefox – easily fix most problems article.

Thank you.
