Default Can you please see if yours is the same for me

I have had my Z1C for a couple of days now, but I have found one missing feature in chrome I am struggling to live without that my xperia t on 4.3 had working perfectly.

Its the magnifier box that pops up when you hit a link close the another one and it just wants you to confirm exactly hat you were pressing, it doesn't do it at all on my Z1C running 4.4.2?

I have looked through the settings, what few there are but I cant find anything to enable it?

Any help anyone has would really be appreciated.

Thank You

When I first got my z1c I was running 4.4.4 and chrome did have this feature. I haven't noticed it lately, though. Perhaps google removed it in an update.

Sorry just realised yes I'm running 4.4.4, but can't find a way to get the feature working, it makes navigating desktop style sites very difficult, I'm forget zooming in and out.

Can anyone confirm they have 4.4.4 and this is working? Thank you

Can anyone else please try chrome on their 4.4.4 Z1C and see if they get the magnifier on links where it is not 100% on which link you pressed.

Its a feature I am really missing, both my T and Z1C are running the same version of chrome but the T does it and the z1c doesn't.

Thank You

Yeah I loved having that feature on my old HTC One X. My Z1c running Cyanogenmod 11 M9 (4.4.4) does not get the pop up magnifier thing... As far as I remember even when I was on stock I never got it.

Hmmmm so seems its something the affects all of us. Anyone out there want to find a way to fix it through xposed framework and make my Z1C perfect hehe

If anyone has it working please let me know as its such a great feature for letting you browse desktop sites on a mobile.

Here is a discussion about the problem. Towards the bottom there is talk of a fix in future updates. An xperia z2 user claims to have the same problem

Some touch devices report either zero or unreasonably small touch sizes. While
this doesn't present a problem for gesture detection, it does affect the
behavior of the touch-derived gestures. For example, tap disambiguation is
prevented if the tap gesture's size is sufficiently small.
