How can I change the appearance of a website so that the tabs, links and fonts don't blend together

Certain websites have links and fonts that "shadow" each other making them difficult to read and to select.

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"

It is better not to increase the minimum font size, but use an extension to set the default page zoom to prevent issues with overlapping text.

Can you attach a screenshot and post a link?

Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot.

Did you make changes here?

You need to use a PNG file.
Photoshop files aren't supported. You can use the Windows Paint program or use the Windows Snipping tool.

Here you go. This is one example. The webpages don't line up correctly.
