iPod Screenshot

I think the default font size in the browser is too small.

Sites that I can read fine on an old iPod Touch, which has the same screen resolution, are impossible to read on the Firefox Phone.

A good example is http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2012/10/the-future-of-markdown.html

The two screenshots attached show that site after double tapping to zoom the main text column.

As you can see in the iOS screenshot, Safari uses a bigger font and is much more readable than what we currently do. We put almost twice the number of characters on a line.
