Font size randomness in Chrome all of a sudden

Nov 19, 2013 at 4:37 AM
I just noticed that chrome is sort of randomly displaying the wrong font size of certain items - like the main nav links. Sometimes they are super big. If i click Shift+F5 it clears and goes back to normal, but then when I click the same nav link they go back to being too big.

I checked the tidy demo and it occasionally does the same thing... usually for me when I click the Tidy sub option under Layouts - sometimes I have to click it a few times, but eventually i get one that is wrong.

This is only in Chrome for me, and I just noticed it today. I cleared the cache in chrome, and rebooted. I saw this on a Win 7 and Win 8 boxes.

I think this is a bug in the latest chrome release:

go leave a comment/confirm it so it gets fixed!

Hi Rdyar,

I must have been too late to see this in action. Everything seems to be working correctly on Windows 8.1 and Google Chrome 31.0.1650.63 m

Are you still able to duplicate this menu sizing issue?

It still does it on your preview site - just checked, same version of chrome as you have above.

I modified my skin to get around it.

I mostly see it on - go there and press f5 or the refresh icon a few times and you probably will see it.

I still get emails from the google bug site, doesn't look like it is fixed yet.

on my site it was very bad - your sample site doesn't do it as bad.

It is only in chrome.

Version 1.2.0 removed the rem font size. This issue should be resolved.
