This seems like a bug to me. I'll get this logged and see what we can do about it.
Thanks for the report,
In case you need it here are some specs of the System
Edge Inspect Android Client Version: 1.0.335.387054
Android Version: 2.2.2
Android Browser Version: Webkit 3.1
Hardware: HTC Desire (European Version).
Thanks. To make sure I understand... to reduce the font size you're opening the browser, bringing up the menu, then selecting settings from there, correct? These aren't settings you can get to from the normal Android settings menu, right?
yes that's correct.
This setting is specific to the Android browser. You change it via the settings menu of the "Internet" App. The label is "Set text size"
