    eBay page shrinks

    Does anyone else have this problem with iPad 1, it starts off ok but when you want to open the second page it starts shrinking until you can't even read it, I have tried stretching it but it does not fix the problem.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    I haven't used EBay for a long time now but that certainly doesn't sound right. Are you using Safari or the app? I think it would be a good idea to close the app and relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly. Let us know how you go.

    As Moonlit suggested use the EBAY application. There is a version for iPhone and iPad. My preference us the version or iPhone on my iPad. I think the interface is much better on the iPhone version.

    By the way both versions are FREE.

    Thanks for your replies about the eBay site shrinking, I should have said, it is in safari that this happens. I prefer this site rather than the app, as it is more usable, eg, editing a listing etc. because of the shrinking I have to go to the app at times where I have no trouble viewing.

    I think the solution is to buy ipad3 or iPadHD, whatever they have decided to call it.

    Mine does exactly the same. Refreshing the page usually fixes the problem, but not always.

    Ah the proverbial problem of to many things in your basket
    All you have to do is archive some of your watched items ended items and purchases to the the delete box or archive them and all will be good

    I have the same problem with EBay using Atomic web browser. Like you, I prefer the site to the app as well.

    I think I have solved my own problem of the shrinking eBay page.
    Go into settings, safari, advanced, make sure the debug console is ON.

    I also cleared history and cookies.

    I also prefer the site to the app. Had the same problem and as per your suggestion I turned debugging on and it seems to have worked! Thanks!
