When using Ask Ubuntu on Android, the font is too large when it comes to anything except post content and comments.

I can reproduce the issue exists in Firefox and in Chrome.

The issue is exclusive to Ask Ubuntu (main site). All other sites in the SE network I tried, have a normal size font, even Ask Ubuntu Meta.

You can see the difference in font size in the below two screenshots (click for larger size).

Main site Meta site

  • I can reproduce the difference between the two screenshots on my desktop Firefox, while simulating mobile view (Ctrl+Shift+M shortcut). I will take the positioning of the logo in the site header (center-aligned on the main site, and left-aligned on meta), as a clue, and suggest that the main site might have received an intended and purposeful style (CSS) update, while the meta site did not.

This is supposedly a fixed bug: Mobile font-size way too large. But with caching involved, it may take a while to go away, and which sites you see it on is a matter of timing. I don't see the problem here on AU, but I do see it on Unix & Linux.

  • Ah thanks! Guess just need to wait it out for now as it seems to be a server side caching issue based on the answer to that question

  • Yep, I'm still having this problem on U&L. I guess they haven't figured out how to force this out of local caches?
