Ok...I'm a retired IT guy and really puzzled why I can't figure this out.
I have a Samsung Galaxy 22 Android phone. Up till a week ago FR was perfectly readable. One day it suddenly made the type very small like a desktop only website. I also have a small Samsung tablet. FR still looks fine on it.
I have looked at FR settings and Chrome browser settings and can't find anything that will fix it. I did just try Firefox on my phone and it looks fine, so obviously this appears to be a Chrome setting problem, but I can't find the right setting.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Are you logged in?
Are you logged in !!
I assume you rebooted.
I have old stuff here too and not an issue on FR
FR still fine on my 8 year old Firefox running on 20 year old WinXP.
On my Android, moto e, I still use Privacy Browser, no issue
And on a Google Pixel fine.
I rotate my 21 to landscape and use two fingers to enlarge.
Your phone’s warranty is about to expire................
I too always use Landscape on a phone device.
Now my phones never login, only my desktop logs in.
FR is one of the best ‘old school’ webpages out there. Nothing evil buried in FR code. Thank you JimRob.
Try a different browser, or clear the cache and cookies etc in the current browser.
Clear the browser cache.
And do tell us when you fix it, what it was. Thanks.
I can use landscape, but prefer portrait. The weird thing is how it suddenly changed and every other browser/device still displays fine.
Btw...mywife and I are going on a tour of Gettysburg battlefield inabout an hour so I’ll be out of pocket for several hours.
Also...YES! I AM LOGGED IN!!! geez!
Same thing happened on my galaxy S9. I messed with it for a while, then decided to just use my Brave browser for FR. That displays like my chrome used to.
“Also...YES! I AM LOGGED IN!!! geez!”
I didn’t refer to that.
I have to re-boot my android every few days or it gets wonkey. Also, check to see if you activated desktop rather than mobil device display, it is a tiny notification in the corner.
If anyone wants on or off the Ping Me When the Internet Goes Down pinglist, kindly FReepmail me. Thanks!
I was in the shower.
Good idea but didn’t work.
I know you didn’t. Just replying to all of the comedians here on FR😊
