Bug Description

liboxideqtcore0
1.12.15-0ubuntu0.15.04.1~overlay1

Mir+Unity8 device

How to reproduce:
1) switch to window mode (for example by connecting a usb mouse to the device)
2) go to google.com and perform a search
3) while on the search results page, resize the browser window to change its width

Expected outcome:
The search results don't scale

Actual outcome:
The webpage is scaled and becomes unreadable with a small window, and huge on a large window

We currently turn on a blink preferences on mobile (shrinksViewportContentToFit) to match the behaviour of Android. We need to add in some plumbing to toggle this when we're on a windowed display (is there a way to detect that?).

I'm not sure this would have any effect until after a page reload though.

Unity8/QtMir/Mir is not updating the display configuration when changing from tablet to desktop mode, so clients cannot tell what mode they should appear in.

QtMir needs to allow Unity8 to set the form factor property on the Display.
Mir needs to fix https://bugs.launchpad.net/mir/+bug/1556142 so that the display doesn't flicker on display change

Is there anything I can do here to help? There's quite a few bugs like this in Oxide that could use this functionality

"this functionality" = current form factor? Or is there more you need?

I've landed https://git.launchpad.net/oxide/commit/?id=e8852866ce6dcbb4976e4a40bfda5274c859fde3 as a first step to fixing this, but it's not yet complete and that doesn't actually change the current behaviour. We also need bug 1610929.

This is sort-of fixed now - we assume that the presence of a mouse implies windowed mode, and adjust the behaviour of the webview accordingly.
