Safari's zooming behavior changed between Snow Leopard and Mtn Lion. Whereas zooming used to leave the width fixed, reflowing the text, it now seems to scale the width and text together, causing text to scroll out of view. How do I get the old behavior on Mtn Lion?

Safari, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8)

    Might be a third party plugin or extension ...



    Troubleshoot Safari plugins and extensions:


    From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Preferences then select the Security tab.


    Deselect:  Allow all other plug-ins. Quit and relaunch Safari to test.


    If that made a difference, instructions for troubleshooting plugins here.


    If it's not a plug-in issue, select the Extensions tab. If there are any extensions installed, turn that OFF, quit and relaunch Safari to test.  If that made a difference, uninstall one at a time, quit and relaunch Safari until you find the culprit. 



    And check Safari > Preferences > Advanced. Accessibility eanbled ??

    OS X Mavericks "hang ten" !!
