    Odd text size with Google Chrome, not with MS Edge


    I've noticed this odd text display on some sites, but not all, websites using Google Chrome. MS Edge displays the same text correctly. I also use Chromium browser on Ubuntu Linux which displays correctly as well. The website is Canonwatch. The font will display a single "f" okay but not double "ff"s. It seem to be a text bloggers type in, not the webpage's standard font.
    Anyways, just seems weird. Any ideas?

  2. Setting default browser for youtube and more...

    You can't set a default browser in windows 10 mobile other than edge. As for Chrome, Google hates windows phone and doesn't develop apps for it.

    To increase size of texts and media for sites, open edge>settings>reading font view size(change it).

    You can also change the size of texts allover the phone by adjusting the DPI(settings>system>display) or increase text size in settings>accessibility.

  3. Losing Favorites In Edge?

    Interesting development. I imported my IE favorites to Google Chrome then I imported the Chrome favorites into Edge. Guess what. I started loosing some of the same Favorites from the Chrome import to Edge as the IE import to Edge.

    That seems really odd.

    Things like this drives me crazy. I'll beat my head into a wall until I find an answer. No need for medics, I found an answer to my question. *Wink

    I have no idea how to setup a webpage but I played with Inspect trying to understand. Using Inspect on this webpage under Styles I noticed a line that said font-family: inherit. When I used Chrome's Font Changer extension to override to a different font the new font was listed next to font-family instead of "inherit".

    When seeing this I did some searches & found it recommended how to find the inherit font would be under Computed which stated / font-family: & listed "Helvetica Neue", arial, sans-serif as fonts. I remembered that I installed Helvetica Neue Bold on my PC long before trying Chrome. And, the font did have a bold look to it. Perhaps Helvetica Neue Normal would've displayed properly but I only had bold installed. After uninstalling Helvetica Neue Bold the font at this website displayed correctly.

    I also checked MS Edge & it also listed the same inherit font options as Chrome did. Why it didn't use Helvetica Neue Bold I have no idea. I'm just glad I figured it out. Now I can stop beating my head! *Wink
