    Hello, starting a week or two ago, I began seeing a strange phenomenon with the text on my mobile web browser. I don't know the cause of it, other than the potential fact that an update to the chrome web browser caused it.

    this forum isn't letting me post a screenshot of the issue because it marks the link as spam

    My only workaround is to highlight sections of text, which can usually remedy the problem, although it is incredibly inconvenient especially if the page is riddled with ads for me to accidentally click on.

    Anyone have any suggestions or fixes? I've personally never seen something like this in my life.

    Device info: Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) Device code: SM-N910T Available Screen size (pixels): 360 x 640

    Have you already tried clearing Chrome's app cache/data in the Settings>Apps menu? Also, why is your available screen size only 360 x 640? The Note 4's screen resolution is 1440 x 2560.

    First, go to Settings/Apps, find the app (Chrome) and see if there's a button to remove or uninstall the update. If there is, use it. Then see if the problem is fixed.

    Also, change Chrome to give you a desktop view (in Chrome/Settings). See if that changes it.

    And go to exactly the same site (if there's an http://m.<something>, add the m.) on a PC and see if it happens. (It looks like something is happening to the site's CSS file, but if it's happening on many sites, Chrome is handling css wrong.)

    Using desktop viewing mode works fine, it's just the mobile viewer that doesn't work, and I'm unable to remove the latest Chrome update without uninstalling all updates

    What happens when you uninstall updates?

    Also, what about my previous question about the resolution? That's puzzling to me, unless I'm misunderstanding something.
