Zooming in browser truncates text on right

Bug Description

When zooming a man page in firefox (ctrl +) the man page text becomes hidden on the right side. I can drag the scroll bar but that makes the left text hidden. Basically, if I want to zoom the text, reading becomes impossible.

It would be preferred if the text wrapped within the existing browser view area.

Thanks for the bug report. Yes, this has always been an issue due to the static rendering imposed by the tools used (w3mman basically). There are currently no plans to fix it other than some pie in the sky ideas about re-rending on size change, but that would likely be easier with a javascript manpage renderer.

Anyway, this falls outside the scope of a bug report, since in this case it's working as designed.

Patches to fix this functionality are very much welcome.
