An image showing veryt thin column on right hand side of a Forums thread in Firefox

At least since 2020, rendering of forums[.]freebsd.org web pages has been broken in contemporary Firefox. Forum index and a thread appear in a 2-3 word wide columns; see the attached screenshot taken in May 2020. Rendering in Firefox still remains broken.

Sometimes "View: Page Style: No Style" or "Reader View" make a thread readadble, except whenever they are not available to choose on a Forums thread. In "Reader View", there is loss of date of post and screenshots/images that might be otherwise available.

I should also note ...

- screen resolution: 1920x1080 px;

- in Windows 10 & FreeBSD 12, minimum font size is 20 in Firefox;

- default zoom of Firefox is 110%;

- no amount of allowing of Javascript or fonts requested by web page produce any change.

Further, running Firefox in "Safe Mode" (without any add-ons) still shows defunct rendering.
Comment 3 parv 2021-04-27 10:52:37 UTC
I can reproduce the situations in a new profile. Case ...

a- "Minimum font size" option is "None" & "Zoom text only" option is unchecked: normal looking rendering;

b- "Minimum font size" is "20" & "Zoom text only checked": thin column, as noted previously.
