User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:35.0) Gecko/35.0 Firefox/35.0
Build ID: 20150108202302

Steps to reproduce:

Open up multiple tabs of different pages. Make sure they are loaded. Spend some time on one tab, then switch to one of the loaded ones. Seems to happen mostly on forums and mediawiki pages


Actual results:

The text on the page of the tab you switch to will be shrunken and spread out, with large spaces in between words, and large spaces between lines


Expected results:

The text should not have changed size or been modified in any way

Can you attach a screenshot from your device?

Will do. Also it seems to mainly affect web pages which don't have a mobile view

Not distorted
This is probably related to font inflation which we are eyeing at removing. Can you set your font size in options to the smallest, reload the page, and check if the problem persists?

Changed it and it seems to work, font stays the same when switching tabs or loading new pages
Thanks for checking. That is the best workaround for now, especially on sites like forums in particular.
