1. Did the text size change recently? It seems to me I noticed it had changed

a couple days ago. I tried myself and haven't been able to change it.

2. I use Google Chrome to change the text size.

Can you change it in the browser you are using ???

Adblock isn't a browser, it is an app to block ads.

Windows, Bing, Microsoft Edge etc. are browsers.

If you are using Google Chrome let me know and I will tell you how to change it.

For Android and iPad OS 14.

6. Thanks for the information.

I wasn't aware.

I am not very tech savvy.

Sorry for the confusion.

4. There doesn't seem to be.

If you are talking about the app with this icon:



If you want to be able to customize web sites, I suggest you look at getting the iCab Mobile browser. (I believe it's $2.) It caters to the tech savvy - it has an ad blocker, css filters (which only allows elements to be hidden), a user agent selector, a web server to transfer files, privacy options, toolbar customization, and lots more.

If you don't mind spending a little time to set things up, it is probably the best browser for iOS. But if you just want something simple, it's not likely to be a good fit.

9. I've been using it for years, so if you have questions PM me.

There are a lot of options, so it can take a while to discover how to set things up - although the basic things are typically fairly obvious.

Just remember if you change settings that use custom filters to match specific websites (or you create your own) [e.g. Filters (URL), Filters (CSS), etc.], you usually need to quit the app and restart it for the changes to take effect.
