I've been using Firefox for a long time now and have never seen an issue like this before. http://prntscr.com/cac6o5 this is a picture from this web page http://www.ghacks.net/2016/06/07/firefox-47/ - Most pages seem to be squishing the fonts. I'm not sure what's going on, it just started doing this recently out of the blue. I'm not sure what else to say about the issue.

I'm using a fairly old version of Firefox, version 34.0.

If anyone can help me out I would really appreciate it!

It seems as so the check box was already checked. And just to note it wont save if I uncheck it.

I'm not exactly sure what you need me to do here.

I am running Windows 8.1 should have mentioned that, sorry.

I'm sorry for double posting but it was a font that I had installed. That Fonts web page you linked me to helped me - I'm gonna leave this here: Helvetica was the font that was causing the issue.
