Why does my font get distored more so when I'm at G+, a month ago I had remove FF as my main browser and use chrome because it was so bad everywhere I went?

Posted

Now, that I have loaded it back up as my main browser it still does the same thing when I'm at G+ and my gmail account but, not yet with my yuku account which FF is highly recommended their.

The worst was when it was happening in my FF tool bar but, so far it has not but, has me paranoid that it will happen again like before since it's still happening @ G+ and Gmail.

Ooo when I tried to take a screen shot for you to see what I see it went away and went back to normal again.

Is it me or is there a bug in there that I am not knowing about or is it s little glitch?

P.S. My bf has been on FF forever and has never had this problem!

Thank you so much for your undivided time, Marie =0)

Sometimes fonts are distorted due to incompatibility with a particular graphics card driver. To check that theory, could you try disabling Firefox's use of hardware graphics acceleration?

You usually need to restart Firefox in order for this to take effect, so save all work first (e.g., mail you are composing, online documents you're editing, etc.).

orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Options > Advanced

On the "General" mini-tab, uncheck the box for "Use hardware acceleration when available"

If you restart Firefox, is the issue resolved or improved?


Some users also miss ClearType anti-aliasing when they use Firefox, compared with IE, since IE has its own ClearType settings independent of Windows. I believe to have ClearType font smoothing in Firefox, you need to turn it on in your Windows display settings.
