My single greatest complaint is the same as many other people's single greatest complaint: column widths.

This hits me two different ways: while mobile, and when reading bigpage/printable.

On mobile, it seems not to set the text, always, as reflowable.

When reading the bigpage, something on the page makes the column a fixed width which is too wide for my 12" monitor, when I use ZoomTextOnly to increase the text size far enough for my aging eyes, pushing the edges of paragraphs off the screen. If I don't use printable, it's worse.

I know that article text, or at least comment text, is -- at some level -- reflowable, as it *isn't* if you use plaintext instead of HTML to enter a comment...

Minimum and maximum column widths can be tweaked in the preferences area; perhaps you have the minimum set to some wide value?

"Minimum width of main text column (em)" is out of range (20 to 99999999)

I demand that right to have 2em columns!!!!!

Actually, it wouldn't help. Once the

block at the top gets all the white space squeezed out of it, it imposes a minimum column width that no setting of "min-width" can over-come.

(at least it does on Firefox)
