The font in Chrome is fine except the url address which looks really tiny. I just switched from Gnome to Ubuntu 15.10 and Chrome looked just fine in Gnome.

Does anyone know what is going on ?

See this picture of Chrome:

Tabs' and pages' font looks fine and readable.

  • Errrmmmm... Excuse me... Did you do something in order to get such effect? Sorry I can't provide an answer so far but I'd like to know what you did before in order to get that font size for two purposes: 1. To provide some help for your situation. 2. For reproducing the case on my own web browser. :D Thank you! – Geppettvs D'Constanzo May 27 '16 at 3:54
  • @Yahyaotaif What version of Chrome do you have? – edwinksl May 27 '16 at 4:00
  • I actually didn't do anything. It looked like this when I installed it. However, I set the zoom to 150. I have Version 51.0.2704.63 on ubuntu 15.10. Also, Chromium looks good and doesn't have this issue. – Yahyaotaif May 27 '16 at 4:10
  • I have the same problem. Did you ever fix this? – timbram Dec 3 '16 at 6:44
  • Unfortunately no. I had to switch back to gnome. – Yahyaotaif Dec 5 '16 at 2:30

Actually, that's the new chrome, ever since v50 update it's like that. Nothing to do with Ubuntu.

Reinstall Chrome and restart your PC. Everything should work fine. Just a small glitch, nothing else. Make sure to remove it completely and reinstall from original PPA.

  • I actually reinstalled it with restart but no luck. I even upgraded to 16.04 but the same issue continues. – Yahyaotaif May 27 '16 at 16:44
  • Ah...the problem must be system scaling. Have you changed the dpi of screen? – Cruelplatypus67 May 28 '16 at 8:12
