I'm using the "Free Adblocker Browser" from Rocketshield. Been using it for years. Something changed in the past couple of days. I actually am using the mobile version (switching to desktop is even smaller!) but everything is so small now and it's showing me things I used to only see in the desktop version. I have to zoom in and scroll to read text and when I reply, everything is so small that I can't even see what I'm writing. Quoting is fine.

It's still fine on my tablet. Nothing changed at all, there.

I use Android on both.

Hey, I went to sleep ;) did you try just a regular browsing session on Chrome on your android smartphone? It could be the form factor or it could be the special browser. Is it giving the same result on both smartphones?

Haven't tried it yet but I will. I use the Free Adblocker Browser because the others have (had? 🤔) so many ads and redirects that the site was impossible to use. I'll let you know how it goes.

And it might just be the app. They're selling the ability to change the way text appears (I guess that's the best way to put it) as a premium feature. I don't recall that being an option before.

Keep me posted, I'll help out if I can.

I totally agree this site is unusable without an adblocker. If I were you I would try Firefox for android and add an extension like ublock origin free. I imagine it’s harder to block adds on an Android since google is primarily an advertisement company. 



This should have been a PSA when someone makes a change like this

Did you ever figure out what was wrong? Are you still having issues? Let me know...

I'm actually so lazy that I never tried any other browser. I just zoom in a lot closer or I turn my phone sideways! Problem never did fix itself.

So, are you seeing the "mobile" version of the website? Or, are you seeing the desktop version on a mobile device?  (and, DAMN - I need to fix the quoting tree thing today!!!)

Mobile version on a mobile device. But I've gotten used to it. It's okay.

I don't want to quote your post - my head my EXPLODE with the quotes within quotes witnin quotes!!!

It's cool that you've gotten used to it - but as a developer, that's definitely NOT feedback I ever feel comfortable with. So, even though it's not bothering you at the moment, if you could take a screenshot at some point and post it here, I would sincerely appreciate it. I really did put a fairly large effort into making this site as "mobile friendly" as possible.

That's not to suggest this site is fantastic at mobile rendering - not by a longshot!!! But I absolutely have tried to do as much as I could in this latest version, to make as much of the site as palatable as possible, when viewing the mobile layout. So, if there's something not quite right - I really do want to see it...



I don't know if you did something but I'm definitely noticing an improvement, today. Might be in my head.
