[v56+] Type about:preferences#general<enter> in the address box. Under fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. Scroll to the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own.

Make sure you haven't enabled a High Contrast theme in the OS settings.

  • We have seen reports that this can be caused by a problem with fonts like Roboto or Helvetica that

you have installed locally and that might be corrupted or are missing some variants. Also, make sure you allow pages to choose their own fonts and that you do not block remote (downloadable) fonts.

  • If you use uBlock Origin make sure not to "block remote fonts".

Thanks for the response. I went there and that box was already checked. Oddly enough it seems to only happen if the window is full sized. If I shrink it, the letters are ok. Im not sure how to check for the high contrast setting in the OS. But I probably didnt change anything like that --intentionally anyway.
