[Misplaced support request] Text looks messed up

    OK, now I get this issue on some websites, but not all. The primary one that I always have the issue with is http://www.hapes.org

    Every time I go to that site, either all or some random portions of the text seems to have gone up a weight value, closer towards being bold (and the bold text even bolder). Which bits of text are boldened changes every time I refresh the screen, and with links they'll sometimes revert to normal if I mouse over and off them a few times.

    When the page is first loading, it all looks fine. When it has finished loading, that's when the text becomes messed up. This has only started happening since my computer updated to FF7. I had originally thought it to be an issue with the site itself, but then I started noticing that on some other sites it seems to be doing the same, but they aren't as easily reproducible as this with this site for me.

    Hi Krace. Do solutions in this article work for you? What about in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode?

    No, solutions in this article don't work, and I get the same results in Safe Mode.
