    ok, I have an odd issue with Safari and Amazon.

    When I search for something and you scroll to the bottom of the first page, you normally see the controls for next page, and the individual pages as well.
    Safari all of a sudden does not show them anymore... If I go to firefox, they show up.

    Safari I have disabled all extensions, javascript, deleted cache/cookies, shut down Safari, restarted Mac... still will not show up. (Amazon only btw) Firefox DOES have adblock and other extensions running and works fine.
    Ive tried switching the user agent on Safari and the only way I can get them to show up is switch to iOS 10.3 iPhone. Even switching user agent to Firefox on mac/windows will not cure the issue.

    the 2 screenshots, I have highlighted the place holders for where the buttons should be in Safari, and then copy/pasted the url to Firefox.

    I'm confused, never seen this before.. It might be Amazon screwing with Safari, or some simple setting i cant seem to find.

    Try un-checking Safari - Preferences - Advanced - Accessibility - Never use font sizes smaller than...

    that fixed it. Thanks!
    Odd that it's only Amazon, i've never seen that before on any website. (And I don't remember turning that on)

    Safari 11 altered the way it deals with page elements having a style including font-size:0 which some websites use to control layout. As a result, some sites that haven't allowed for it can show odd results, or even missing content; if that option is checked on.

    I'm almost certain that Amazon looked OK a day or so ago, since I almost always have that checked & set to 16 or 18.
