Zoom Text Only Anomaly

Postby helloimustbegoing » Sat, 10 Feb 2018, 03:04

I have come across an anomaly when using "Zoom Text Only" under "View >> Zoom." I have noticed that certain buttons on websites move around with zooming with this option checked, but don't when it's unchecked. Is that normal? Screenshots below, first is with Zoom Text Only checked, second is with it unchecked.

My guess is that these icons are unicode characters, not pictures.
From personal experience, zoom text only causes too many issues and I’ve only used the complete zoom for a long time.

This is the reason full page zooming became a thing because JUST increasing the text size can have a bad effect on page design. Best to zoom the whole damn thing ;)

Thanks, I guess I'll keep it unchecked.

Can an add-on like NoSquint fix this problem? I've tried unchecking zoom text only, and I hate how big the images get. Or, is there a way to have some sites use Zoom Text Only and other sites not use it?
