On Firefox for Android, there is an option to specify pinching to reflow text, so we should consider having that option on Firefox OS too.

Would like to have, but not on 1.x branch.

Pinch to reflow text in fennec was replaced with double-tap to reflow text. In order to achieve parity with fennec, we'd need to implement this in b2g as well. Currently, the code exists in browser.js in the fennec branch, so whatever corresponds to browser.js in b2g would need to have code added. 

(The platform-side max-line box width API is already in central, so since we're talking about 1.2 here, it should be fine.)

Let's wait until this is settled out on Android before calling it sprint ready

Scott, is there a bug that this can block on for settling this issue on Android?

There is no one bug on Android to track for this. We've been experimenting with the feature for over 3 years now and while I think we're making progress I still wouldn't call it "figured out". As I said before, let's get this sorted out there before attempting an impl for b2g

Okay! Removing nomination for now, as per comment 7.

This only seems to focus on a section of the page but any more zooming does not rearrange the large text in the window as in Firefox 23. This is really annoying as I usually like the text to be bigger for comfortable reading. I filed a bug report thinking it was a bug rather than deliberate change of the browsers behavior.
