Swedish characters åäö is rendered larger then all other text, making swedish text look very ugly.

Posted

Firefox Browser for android version 17 is rendering the swedish characters larger then all other characters. This is making the text ugly and harder to read.

A re-install of the app did not solve any problems and no other browser has this problem (tested with chrome and android default browser).

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S3 International (GT-I9300) phone rooted and running FoxHound ROM v1.7.

A screenshot is available here: http://darkwhispering.com/upload/Screenshot_2013-01-03-18-25-04-1251777615.png

Anyone have a similar problem and maybe a solution, or should it be reported as a bug?

This appears to be an issue with your rom. I can load the same page on a stock SIII GT-9300 without the issue you are seeing.

I would assume that you have installed some fonts on your rooted device that Firefox is using to display the text and that font is missing some glyphs. So instead of using a font that includes all glyphs Firefox needs to use another font to display the accented characters and that font looks larger.
