Google Search Console Errors - Mobile Usability - Is giving me the following 2 errors:

1. Clickable elements too close together
2. Content wider than screen


Both errors use the following 3 pages as an example:
https://www.xfyro.com/pages/contact-us
https://www.xfyro.com/blogs/news/wireless-earbud-hacks
https://www.xfyro.com/blogs/news/swimming-waterproof-earbuds


1. Clickable elements too close together
I suspect the "Clickable element too close together" may be the footer links too close together?

If so, how do I go about to fix this on Shopify?


2. Content wider than screen
I have no idea. Site seems fine on my mobile.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

I am experiencing a very similar issue as the original poster.

On July 14, I received an e-mail from Google identifying two issues not seen before:
 
1)Text too small to read
2)Clickable elements too close together
 
No recent changes had been made to the site.  https://www.italiastraps.com/ 
No mobile issues had ever been indentifed by Google until 7/14.
 
The "Your page is not mobile-friendly" warning appears in the SERP when logged into Google account. Validation fails within Search Console but running the Mobile Friendly Test independently says the Page is mobile friendly.  Strangely, the"Your page is not mobile-friendly" warning only appears in the SERP for the homepage. All the other many pages on the site don't produce any warning.
 
My hope is that this is a temporary error that will clear shortly and I don't really want to chase a problem that really is not there. 
 
Any additional insight or advice would be appreciated.
 
Thanks!

I'm having the same issue with the error "Content wider than screen".  It's a new error, and also if I run the Google Mobile-Friendly test, the site passes.  Any info would be appreciated - I don't want to spend a bunch of time chasing something that's a non issue too.

Yes exactly, those 3 pages pass the Google Mobile Friendly test as well.

Update: On 7-19 I received an additional e-mail from Google about "content too wide for screen".

However, by 7-20 the warning about my page not being mobile friendly was no longer showing on the SERPs.  I didn't make any changes to my site. The warning cleared on it's own.
