    I installed adfree this morning on my newly rooted droid, and I've noticed what appears to be quite a big negative side effect. Before installing it, the browser was very good at formatting columns of text to fit the browser window. Double tapping on a column of text would always zoom in and fit the text to the screen. Using the manual zoom in/out buttons would readjust the text to fit the screen again. After installing adfree however, this stopped working. I find myself constantly having to scroll left and right when reading web page articles. Reverting my hosts back from within adfree seems to fix the problem, but of course it also stops blocking ads.

    Is this a known issue? Must I choose between properly formatted columns and adfree pages?

    I don't know if its adfree or dolphin browser, but sometimes a zoom won't take. The browser will zoom out and then revert.

    More annoying, and definitely caused by adfreee, is not being able to get to certain links. On slate.com, for example, the related links at the end of a column are blocked as ads.

    If you're trying to figure out if it is the Dolphin Browser that is causing the issue, why not open the same page in the default browser and see if you experience the same problem?

    Because it happens rarely enough that I don't care that much, I figured i'd ***** about something while we were at it. :) Seriously, I think a reboot might have cleared it up at this point.

    Now I would actually appreciate a way to configure adfree to not block links we click on.
