Describe the bug

Originally brought on Mastodon
On some(?) version(s) of Chrome for Android, it appears that there is huge inter-lines spaces making the reading really hard.
Bug thumbnail

I would label this issue as "bug" since apparently, this only happens on some version of Chrome for Android.

Steps to reproduce (if necessary)

  1. On Chrome for Android (Chrome 80.0.3987.149 for Android)
  2. Go to

Expected behavior

The interline space should be way smaller.
expected behavior

I played a bit with Chrome remote debug tools, and here is what I found:
The issue seems to be linked to these css lines:
#post article.norm { line-height: 1.5; }

Changing it for line-height: normal seems to correct the problem.

But to keep the relation between user font-size parameters, we can use em units for example line-height: 0.6em.
With em

After discussion, I would be happy to propose a MR :)

Thanks for opening an issue for this!

Before making any changes, I'd like to confirm that this affects more people, and that updating the line-height is the correct solution. To do that, we'll need to be able to replicate this -- I'm also running Chrome 80.0.3987.149 on Android but am unable to get the same results.

Can anyone else confirm they're seeing this issue?
