Fonts not displaying properly on certain sites
Over the last week or so I've encountered several websites where the fonts aren't rendering properly. (Sample image attached.)
Anyone know why?

Is this about a specific font ?
You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the builtin Inspector with this element selected.
You can check in the Rules tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font-family is used for selected text.
You can check in the Font tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font is actually used because Firefox might be using a different font than specified by the website.
You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.
- Options/Preferences -> General: Performance
remove checkmark: [ ] "Use recommended performance settings"
remove checkmark: [ ] "Use hardware acceleration when available"
Close and restart Firefox after modifying the setting for changes to take effect.
You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.
Very helpful reply, thank you Cor-el!
I have determined that it's just one font: Raleway.
I haven't fixed the problem yet, but I'll keep trying. In the meantime, at least I know it's only one font being affected.
