Firefox 18.0.2 is displaying some web pages incorrectly

Posted

I have just installed the latest security update and pages which had been displayed prior to the update, consisting of columns of names and numbers, occupying an entire page, are now scrunched up, in very small font, at the left side of the page and are virtually unreadable. I am running FF 18.0.2 with Mac OS X Mountain Lion. Help, please!

Can you attach a screenshot?

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

Reset the page zoom on pages that cause problems.

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

You can do a check for corrupted and duplicate fonts and other font issues:

This morning FF is rendering pages correctly! I didn't do anything to correct the problem. Thanks for your offer of help.
