Font just changed

On Friday the font to the site changed on my computer with chrome. I reset my cookies, history and cache back to the beginning of time, and the letters are still a bit janky.

    We didn't deploy any changes on Friday. Not sure I can look into this without more information.

    I was just about to post this myself, yeah... It's definitely a different font. Things look a little... weird? Font looks bigger, it has more spacing.

    It didn't change on Friday for me though, it only changed today. And strangely, earlier today it looked fine.

    Font is definitely different, larger by at least 1 point size. Only showed up for me this afternoon.

    Note, the font is the same size on the menu pages, location text, and framing navigation, just is larger for post content by a decent bit.

    Yeah I was reading the forums earlier today and they were normal. Just opened a thread a minute ago and noticed the main post font has changed.

    Using desktop chrome, and also experiencing the weird font on and off.

    It usually does this for ~half a second when I first start the computer up in the morning, only on the first page or two of PA, and then switches fonts w/o a refresh. Now its just showing the other font constantly.

    Looking at the CSS in Chrome Developer Tools there is now a

    body.Vanilla .userContent {
    font-size: 14px;

    that is setting the font size to 14. If I disable it goes back to size 13 font which it was using before.

    Getting the same thing on desktop Firefox. Was thinking my glasses needed a stronger prescription.

    Same. Win 10, Firefox 73.0.1. It's particularly noticeable on previously tiny text in people's sigs, now the same size font as the body of the post.

    Looks like the font is slightly wider too? Might be my imagination.

    Text in the composition field as I'm typing is the same as usual, though.

    Seems like in-thread text is increased by 10% or so. If you zoom out a touch when inside a thread, it looks like it used to.

  • bowenbowen How you doin'? Registered User regular
    Yeah 90% is the sweet spot for me on desktop.

    But then it zooms out on the thread pages and such.

    not a doctor, not a lawyer, examples I use may not be fully researched so don't take out of context plz, don't @ me
