Description

2 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0
Build ID: 20160315153207

Steps to reproduce:

I opened some pages (in certain protected areas, bank and government) that contain text with font-size attribute in em units and other in rem units (as appeared later). Browser: Firefox 45.0.1.
I tried the same pages in Internet Explorer 11.0: no problem.


Actual results:

Since some text were very small, I zoomed in. Some text did zoom in, but other texts remained the same (very small).
I checked the font size attributes. The texts not zooming in have the rem-unit. Zooming in only works on the text having the em unit or other.


Expected results:

All texts should zoom in (and out).

Summary: Fonts having the font-size specified in rem-units enlarged when the page is zoomed in → Fonts having the font-size specified in rem-units will not zoom in
I just tried a simple testcase with elements having both rem and em units, zoomed in, and the text in both types zoomed as expected.

Could you give a specific example of a page where you see this problem (without requiring a bank or gov't login), or create a testcase that shows the same behavior?

Sorry, I can't. Perhaps it is a very specific situation. Please ignore this bug and change the status appropriately.
My apologies.
