I do occasionally encounter the same problem on my Samsung S5 as well. I don't normally access the site through it, but it can be problematic.

No change to the first four posts, but starting at post 5 they are all indented.

Edit: Until this one, which is not.

Johanna, doesn't it drive you nuts that you can't 'inspect element' on a smartphone browser?... it drives me nuts. I do a lot of browser-specific CSS troubleshooting using the built-in developer tools, which have become indispensable... but no dev tools for smartphone browsers.
I haven't looked into it, but can you utilize a tool in an emulator to do that function?
You would normally think that, but without being able to look under the hood I've found that most (free) emulators don't use the actual mobile browser engine... or don't configure it correctly, maybe?... there's a video of a talk done by the guy who runs the quirks mode website who delved deeply into the various calculations that mobile devices do to figure out the viewport and scaling... it's complicated and I think that's partly where (free) emulators go wrong. What this ultimately means is that when you view it in an emulator on your laptop thru the desktop browser then everything looks fine - no visual errors like on the phone.

Besides, the benefit of being able to use the developer tools that are built into all modern browsers is that I can change the css, html, and javascript code on the website in real-time and see the change in order to figure out where I went wrong. There are, unfortunately, no developer tools accessible on mobile browsers... which isn't entirely true, since after posting my intial post I did find this which might work:
https://developer.chrome.com/devtools/d ... -debugging
but I haven't had a chance to check it out yet.

The forum is unreadable on my Android device (Samsung Note) as well. Shows as dark font on dark background.
