    Nexus 7 (2013)
    Lollipop 5.0.2
    Chrome browser

    Occasionally an orange frame appears around the screen when using Chrome. Usually text is enlarged and only part of the web page is visible. The frame can be removed by changing from vertical to horizontal.

    It's annoying. Google hasn't found any related complaints, so I'm probably using the wrong search terms.

    Can anyone direct me to a helpful site?

    Which keyboard are you using?

    As Diddy said it could be an accessibility setting. Switch magnification and high contrast off.

    Just in case switch battery saver off. That's another thing with orange frames.

    Welcome to Android Central! It's probably an accessibility function, either Chrome's or your phone's. In Chrome, tap Menu, then Settings, and look at the Accessibility settings. If nothing is turned on there, then go to the phone's System Settings, select Accessibility, and look for anything turned on there.

    This is happening when I use my keyboard. Just started after 5.0.2 update. And seems to start when I use back arrow key.

    Go to settings>system>accessibility >Magnification Gestures Select Off. This setting is not supposed affect the keyboard, but in my case it did. Changing this setting solved the problem.

    Mine is a red boarder and it appears when I use the camera and the gallery applications as well as the chrome. My note 5 recently ungraded to marshmallow and the Web page isn't magnified.

    That's a magnification feature you have to turn off. My Samsung had it and it drove me nuts. Go to settings-personal-accessibility-vision and scroll down. Turn off the magnification gestures. You're welcome.

    Go into your phone settings, go to accessibility and see if anything is checked...if so, uncheck it. I had this problem and after I did this my problem was gone! 😉

    Three screen taps turns on the magnification on my Moto X 2nd Gen (when it is enabled) and three taps turns it off again - in case you may not want to disable it.

    Triple tapping the screen causes this. Triple tap to go back to regular. It lets you zoom in on the screen.

    THANKYOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I was ready to throw my phone at the wall as everytime I used the backspace key it went into that horrible magnified mode that was impossible to get out of. Problem fixed!
