questionsis this by design, or a strange glitch?

One image is a pretty small sample, but the thing I notice is that it's the one line comments only. Perhaps @josefresno or his team might find it interesting to check out. I don't browse deals from a phone, and I have an iPhone in any case, so I can't really see whether this is consistent across platforms.

@thumperchick, details about your phone may also be helpful (such as which of the thousand or so android phones it is).

@shrdlu: It's an HTC one.
I will browse around and see if it is only the single line comments.
Eta: it is apparently not just single line -

Happens to me on a GS3 with Chrome. The second comment is smaller than the first, and it is two lines.

Edit: on Android's native browser, all of the comments are the same size.

@chris12345: same here. Native Android browser - all answers equal size. Only see the issue in chrome.

After a bit more looking around, I'm only noticing the issue on comments that are 2 lines or less. So, this comment is filler to see if it goes normal at 3 or 4 lines.

Eta - weird! If it goes up to 3 lines, it jumps to the larger text, making it 4 lines. Anything under 3 lines is tiny text. Exception seems to be if you use line breaks, like my comment at the top.

Okay, invoking @mattschuette (just in case @josefresno is on vacation).

I'm not a fan of the chrome browser in any case, and am not surprised that there are issues on the android phone with it, but it may still be an easy change that the developers can deal with quickly, and I'm sure that they'd like to know about it.

Don't know what it is, but I bet < div class="ellipsisText" > has something to do with it.

There appears to be a bug in Chrome for Android related to the FontBoost feature.

@mattschuette: Looks like there's a temporary workaround you could put in that wouldn't affect other visitors, too:

"Currently the only side-effect free way to disable Chrome for Android's Font Boosting is to set CSS max-height:1000000px on the block that contains the text (any fixed height greater than the actual height will do); setting it on the parent or grandparent block (but not higher up than that) will usually also work."
