    Hi All-

    I'm using Safari and Firefox, both work the same. I don't know if it is the browser or El Capitan causing the problem. Before El Cap. if I resized a window the text would stay the same size and move to fit the new window size without having to scroll back & forth (Lt & RT) to read the lines. Sentences are cut off on the right side & don't automatically wrap around anymore. I can't find in browser prefs or Mac prefs how to make text wrap around again. Any idea's? :confused:

    All websites? Some websites behave that way regardless.

    I guess it's not all sites, seems like it, you don't notice but the ones that don't work. MacRumors works fine but, for example, eBay don't. I would think there would be some setting to change that, if not my iMac or browser setting (which I find none) maybe the website? Oh well, just seems I never noticed it before El Cap, probably just me...

    Post a link from eBay, from a page that is problematic. I’ll see what happens. I have Safari and Firefox.

    O.K, the description on this item (may have to scroll down) from eBay, for me to read the full lengths of each line of text I have to have the window stretched to 11" in length. Anything less cuts off text on the right hand side & I have to scroll to read it. I wouldn't want to make the text font smaller or I'd barley be able to read it.

    I’m using non-retina MacBook Pro, I have the same issue as you (if I enlarge the text size). The default size displays properly, but for each increase, the length I have to scroll right expands further.

    Left-Right scroll bar illustrates this

    Scrollbars are normal in any browser when an element can't shrink to fit, like this one which has a min-width tag in order to prevent excessive text wrapping.
