    Hi,

    I am developing some mobile web pages for Android browsers. I have the following viewport meta tag in the page header which *generally* results in a satisfactory page size:

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no">

    The exception is when I hit the back button. The previous page will load, but it will be larger that it was originally (zoomed in). I find hitting the reload button will fix the problem. However, that is not a practical solution. We have observed this issue on a Nexus One and a HTC Desire.

    Can anyone offer a solution? Maybe a more appropriate meta tag perhaps?
    Thank you.

    Regards

    Brett S

    Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I am running into the same thing.
