I can still reproduce this issue, but only when using the mobile version of webpages:,

Steps to reproduce:
1. Load 
2. Press reload
3. Press reload

after step 2, the webpage is zoomed out.
after step 3, the webpage is zoomed in.

the page should remain at the same scale

I would expect everyone to be able to still see this bug. It has not been fixed. If it was fixed, we would set the status to RESOLVED:FIXED

Mark, I can reproduce this bug.
Comment 6 User image Aakash Desai [:aakashd] 2011-05-16 08:44:25 PDT
Mark, can we track this bug to a release somewhere? It's been failing our test suites for months now and its a common enough use case to warrant not being stuck in bugzilla for this long.
Comment 7 User image Mark Finkle (:mfinkle) (use needinfo?) 2011-05-16 10:40:25 PDT
I don't follow the reasoning for this bug. Do we want to remember the last zoom for every website you ever visit?
Comment 8 User image Ioana Chiorean 2011-05-17 00:22:59 PDT
Mark, I guess that the correct behavior is to leave the page at same zoom level. Cause now, at each reload it zooms in or out. (even for error pages) 

Here is a video of the problem:
