Why are words overlapping on different websites I’m viewing in Google Chrome?

Rochelle Lowenthal February 18, 2012

I have overlapping words at different site and on Facebook. All the words at web sites are overlapping. Also, how do I make my search box larger on iGoogle, Google Chrome?

    Some pages work best with IE, I reload the page with the IE Tab extension.

    I get the same thing. Simply reloading the page solves it.

    Screen resolution and text size affect this.  Try sizing up or down with CTRL + or -.  This resets the page zoom.  You can change the font size by  clicking on the wrench (upper right), then select Options, and go to the Under the Hood page to adjust font size.

    What's your screen resolution? On some websites, they don't account for a really low resolution, so that could possibly make the text overlap as well.

    Hello, make sure your browser is up to date.  Do you any extensions that might affect how a page is shown?  This can also be caused by sites that are optimized for other browsers like Explorer.  As a trial to see if this is a possible reason for this, try installing the following:

    Hello Rochelle,

    Try adjusting font zoom in View by Pressing CTRL+ and  to reduce CTRL-

    You can also try pressing Ctrl+0 to reset the whole browser to normal view..

    TRY Downloading the latest beta version. From here.

    I hope it helped...

    Is the text displayed like this ?


    It was automatically solved in that case.
    (try restarting and disabling recently added extensions.)

    You can use this bookmarklet to resize the igoogle searchbox :


    (Tested OK)

    Now for overlapping,  we have to find the reason,

    I hope you tried restarting and browser cleaning already.
    Else you can reinstall chrome as last resort.
