I'm now experiencing the dreaded purple background. Definitely makes reading a bit more of a challenge. (chrome on Android 4.4.2)

Last night I had the same issue with Firefox on Android 4.2.2

Interesting....

... that you're both using android 4.4.2

Any chance you could post a screenshot so everyone could see what you are seeing?

Here's a LINK telling how to do it if aren't sure.

Screen Dimensions

Piper's picture

Actually it's a new "feature" that seems to be in all webkit/blink based browsers. It likes to "chop" multi-column views into lesser columns.When it does this, it doesn't do agood job. To fix this I would need the "screen dimensions" of your phones. (eg 800x600 or 1280x720 or whatever it is). -Piper

Rhona, you are still getting the purple background? And do you see a 2 column or 3 column view now? Our iPad tests were fixed at last check.

2 column purple

I have an iPad Air 2 as well. It show two columns and purple, unless I use a trick to request desktop mode. In that case it shows normal.
