    Hi all,

    I was using my university's online classroom a couple of days ago & there has been a very odd zoom that has come into effect. As a result, I can't use the website.

    I have not changed any settings on the webpage or Safari recently. The webpage appears fine on Chrome on my MacBook Pro. The issue isn't being faced by any other users.

    I contacted the IT team of my university & they washed their hands of the issue, unfortunately.

    Would appreciate any help from MacRumors.

    thank you!

    It might be an idea to post some screenshots of this “odd zoom”. :)

    Sure, here are a couple. The one in which "MA203 - Real Analysis" is clearly visible is the Chrome webpage & what the webpage should look like. The zoomed in version is the other one, which is on Safari.

    Thank you very much!

    I thought the safari screenshot looked like a mobile version of the site, but I’ve just checked and it’s just the way safari displays it.

    I know you’ll have tried this, but can you zoom out with cmd-minus.

    Have you tried clearing website data for that site?
