some web pages not formatted correctly

Posted

Text is shifted off screen. Opera renders correctly

Chosen solution

If you have increased the minimum font size then try the default setting "none" in case the current setting is causing problems.

  • Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced > Minimum Font Size (none)

Make sure that you allow websites to choose their fonts.

  • Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced > [X] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"

Reset the page zoom on pages that cause problems.

  • View > Zoom > Reset (Ctrl+0 (zero); Cmd+0 on Mac)

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

Images showing the problem are posted; the first is Firefox, the second is Opera. Notice the rendering under Weather Stations at the right. There are other web pages where information is shifted so that a portion of the information is outside the box and it isn't always at the right of the browser page. I have played with all sorts of settings to get things to render correctly at a 1920x1080 resolution, but every one seems to have a problem of one kind or another. I'm currently using 150% text size and "none" as the minimum text size for the browser. The default 125% text size has similar problems.
