    Edge font sizes are now ridiculously huge. 10 word in one screen, each on it's own line. And longer words are not visible as whole - and it's not possible to scroll the page sideways...

    Some pages (like this forum) are readable, but fonts are still too big.

    Have tried all size-related settings I could find, but none helped - other items (menus etc) functions fine.

    3 soft resets already done.

    Now I must use Opera, but would prefer Edge.

    Anybody else having same problem? And maybe some solutions? I really like to avoid hard reset.

    950XL and regular OTA update last night in Finland.

    I also have this issue. I tried the desktop version and that makes no difference.

    Ease of Access -> text size did the trick by me

    ah yes, but only if you set it to 100%, any bigger and problem returns

    Exactly, only 100% works which makes other parts of the interface hard to read.

    sizing the text to 100% does work, but because all the fonts seem to be related by changing the scale there, the twitter font is now tiny

    I'm having the same issue with Edge on my Lumia 830. Internet sites display incorrectly.
    They are extremely large. Other time they display correctly, but the bottoms of lettering is cut off.
    Yet, other times the display is very small...
    I tried the Desktop, and the Mobile versions. It did not correct the problem.
    I tried setting Display, Size of Text to 100, 150, and the recommended 200. None of this corrected the problems.
    Microsoft needs to Size Things Up better.

    I have the same issue.

    If I scale down to 100 the websites are better but everything else (texts, contacts, ect.) are also smaller. That doesn't work for a middle aged man with increasingly bad eyesight.

    Before the update, I could set everything at 160 and the websites weren't affected.

    I'd go back if I could. I'm still debating rolling back to 8.1

    I never had issues like this with the old OS.

    Had the problem on my 950XL. Set font size to 100%, restart the phone. Fixed. (Seems bigger font size hides the opt-in/opt-out buttons. This fixes it.)
