Sentences overlap each other on some web pages rendering them unreadable..is there a solution?

Posted

On some web pages the lettering is eerily similar to the ink running. Often one line appears over to of another. I have attempted changing the font size but I get the same result.

Reset the page zoom on pages that cause problems: View > Zoom > Reset (Ctrl+0 (zero); Cmd+0 on Mac)

If you have increased the minimum font size then try the default setting "none" as a high value can cause issues like you described.

  • Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced > Minimum Font Size (none)
  • Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced > [X] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"
