For probably about a week now, I have not been able to read the font! I cannot change it either! It is horrible, and if we can't get it fixed I will have to use another browser! The font is faint, small and I've tried changing it several times. I don't have this problem on any other browser! In fact I totally uninstalled it this am hoping that would fix it! No such Luck!

Can you give more detail about what is wrong with fonts and where you experience it (user interface, some or all web pages) ?

Can you attach a screenshot?

Is this with all websites/pages, some, a few?


Type about:preferences#general<enter> in the address bar. Across from fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. On the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own.

No it did not. I had turned it off, it was on. No difference either way!

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.


Does it help if you increase the default Zoom ?

Firefox has a Zoom section in Options/Preferences where you can set the default zoom level for web pages.

  • Options/Preferences -> General -> Language and Appearance -> Zoom
