Some sites like OP.GG have a black stroke on letters. I've already looked at other forums and options.


Settings > Language and Appearance > Fonts and Colors > Advanced > Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above. This method does not work along with disabling high contrast (disabled already)

Any sort of help would be appreciated except telling me what I already did. Thank you

You can check for font related issues.

You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the builtin Inspector with this element selected.

You can check in the Rules tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font-family is used for selected text. You can check in the Font tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font is actually used because Firefox might be using a different font than specified by the website.

Make sure you haven't enabled a High Contrast theme in the OS settings.

We have seen reports that this can be caused by a problem with fonts like Roboto or Helvetica that you have installed locally and that might be corrupted or are missing some variants. Also, make sure you allow pages to choose their own fonts and that you do not block remote (downloadable) fonts.

Using the inspector, I was able to find out what font the website was using. Which was Helvetica 75 Bold Outline, I ended up deleting the font from my windows fonts folder. Fixing everything, Thanks a bunch!

edit: grammar
