    It's been almost exactly one month since I got my phone and have had nothing but great times with it.. until recently, when it just stopped auto-fitting pages in the browser. The worst part is that in overview I can see the text scaled down into columns that look like they'd fit perfectly on the screen, but when I tap to zoom in on them, they don't fit.

    I seem to have stumbled across a *possible* fix here, but I can't get into the .apk to set the permission:

    Has anyone else been having this issue and if so, how did you fix it? Or I guess another question would be - how exactly do I change the permissions of browser.apk using Root Explorer?

    Well, a great workaround is to use another browser. Dolphin hd will layout text w/ a doubletap after zoom. Xscope does it automatically.

    As a bonus, both browsers have tabs and u can set the user agent to computer/desktop.
