Text in tabs overlap and become unreadable

Posted

This happens with every update of firefox for the last several updates and makes firefox unusable. The text in every tab overlaps and cannot be read. The more tabs the worse it gets. I have seen this problem in forums since 2010. Have tried everything in options/fonts. Current firefox searches shows over 1200 responses and the result does not change much no matter how I word the search

Are you u a userChrome.css file in the chrome folder in the profile folder?


Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
