Opera Mini Mode Font Size Not Fixed in v8 for iOS

  • I use the mini mode of Opera with 200% magnification. With version 8x on my iPhone iOS 8, as I swipe down the webpage, text will periodically resize itself, requiring a double tap to reset it. I keep trying the updates and then restore v 7.5 till this issue is resolved. Any other suggestions would be quite helpful.

  • Could you please give an example of a page on which you encounter the problem? Do you have Single Column View or Text Wrap enabled?

  • I have this happen now and again, too - I figure I've done an accidental quick double tap and drag, which will change the font size. It does get annoying.


  • Quick tap and dragging is a single finger zoom gesture. Do you perform it sometimes by accident when scrolling or doing other things?

  • Thanks mbaluta, I am using Text Warp with Single Column View. After reading your tip on quick tap I've had less frustration in using (except on the bus). I'm keeping the old version backed up on my HD if I get tired of the anomalies.

  • While I'm here, I wish the javascript on Zap2it TV listings would not reload the page and show the program descriptions on the same page as it used to in v. 7.5. Otherwise I like the direction Mini is going.
