How to view this site in Firefox on Android?


For whatwever reason the "text reflow" addon for Firefox ceased to work when it last updated.
So, how do people who don't have perfect eyesight read and use this website in Firefox on Android without spending hours scrolling the text around?

Anyone? I have (had) been posting less frequently recently due to not "playing with" linux as muc recently but I find myself back "massing around" but attempting to read and post on this site on android seems to mean constant squinting and scrolling with no apparent way to just make posts flow so that the textx isn't tiony or requiring scrolling in all dirrections to read.
Surely there miust be a way of making this, and other sites, readable on a phone?

tbh, i don't.
i don't do forums on my phone at all, for that precise reason.
only very few forums are mobile friendly.
a few more sold their soul to tapatalk.
and everybody is waiting for LQ's software upgrade, who knows what that will bring...

Thank you. It is good to know I am not alone in this. And, yes, I have seen "tapatalk" but not been convinced.

there's something about expressing myself by typing on a real keyboard... can't really recreate that feeling on a phone...

The keyboard on this phone is smaller than I'd like but it is a real keyboard (though I have no idea what to do when it dies).
