Text are hard to read despite the default settings on fonts

Posted

I think ever since the latest updates, some websites displays a different font that are so hard to read even though my settings are at default (Times New Roman, 16 and have selected "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" on the Options). I have also tried ClearType Text Tuner. Back then, they were still normal but it's now having hiccups on the fonts, not only on one website does it happen but also on some websites.

First picture are the fonts on Firefox (it wasn't like that before) and second picture is from Chrome (although the color is too light but you can see the difference).

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Never mind, it worked suddenly but any opinions would still be welcome.

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

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.
