    So I do not know what button combo this does or what ****ing purpose it servers for but it drives me nuts.

    It only happens in safari as I am aware. Every now and then while browsing if my finger is on the trackpad the safari page will almost like zoom out/zoom in and the page becomes blurry. I cannot get click anything/refresh on that page, basically have to close the tab.

    I tried going to edit - actual size -- nothing.
    I tried command + scroll up/down -- nothing.

    This is honestly driving me off the wall, wtf do i activate when this happens and what is it?

    Its the double tap to zoom function if Im not mistaken.

    Double tap again to zoom out.


    Didn't read. Ignore me. Carry on.

    Moving 2 fingers apart on the track pad zooms in. Move 2 fingers towards each other to recover.

    Nope :)

    This doesn't even work on my trackpad..

    Its something to do when my finger is down towards the button/click area and the other is moving on the actual trackpad.. Or I think so at least

    You can see all the lion trackpad gestures on the apple site win example how to do them but I'm not sure any are meant to any are meant to make your screen blurry

    Here is a screenshot, it just happened to be gmail of course when it happened so I had to cut most of the **** out.\

    But look on the side where it says Mail, Sent.. etc. Also up top.

    Thats exactly how it looks, not quality degradation in screenshot. Stuff just seems blurred out, also if I close the tab and reopen it, then everything looks fine. Again this just happened to be gmail it happens on any other site..

    Looks like Safari is zooming in ever so slightly due to a bug. If that's the case then cmd-0 should restore it.

    I will have to remember this command and next time it happens to use it.

    Cause now what I do is curse the hell out of safari/macbook, this *feature*? pisses me off the most out of everything.

    Then I'd say it's not the regular zoom causing it. :confused:

    Just wanted to point out that your email address is still visible at the top of Safari.

    I have forwarded it to the Nigerian prince...

    I think it's a bug. I get this a lot to and the way I fix it is by zooming in and then zooming back out. I hope Apple fixes it soon.

    The most *********g annoying thing about Lion is the Snow Leopard posters posting about how they'll never switch to Lion..though we know they will..

    Just wait until 10.8 is released. Then Lion will be the "best OS X ever" and 10.8 will be "the worst."

    are you talking about:

    control + wheel mouse?

    Open System Preferences
    Select Keyboard or Mouse or Trackpad
    Disable/Enable "Zoom while holding Control"
