Yes I know you can do that, but you don't want to have to re-size the display simply in order to select a thread, then resize it back again when you return, so that you can see the whole list again....
Ah - is that an android thing? If I enlarge a screen to click on an icon, the new screen comes up normal size (on my iPad/iPhone). I do it on most pages when I'm using my phone as my fingers are so fat
Not sure if it's an O/S thing or a browser thing, but using my standard (on mobile) combination of Firefox/Android, the sequence is like this:
you get the "View Unread" list,
enlarge it to the size you want, to hit the button,
select the post, new window opens up at normal size,
read the post at normal size,
takes you back to the list in the same size as you left it (i.e. enlarged in this case). This means that to see the whole list (if it contains a number of items) you either have to re-zoom it out, or refresh it.
I've just tried it with the default browser as well as Firefox, and that's the same.
In fact, thinking about it a bit more, if I read a post from the "view unread" list and then use the browser "back" button on the pc to return to the list, it doesn't force a page refresh either, but of course there's no issue of zooming to consider there.
