In the past week, any Google search on Firefox or Chrome (but not Opera) gives me results where the fonts look gappy. Sometimes there are additional dots above the letters. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox from scratch in case an add-on was at fault but even with a clean install I am still seeing the issue. I checked my font settings and do not have any minimum font size set. I have allow pages to choose their own font ticked.

I've uploaded an image where I can see some correctly rendered text and some gappy looking text (not from a Google search but a Mozilla query). It also happens when commenting online sometimes, during typing it will be gappy but it will show properly once submitted. Any ideas for a fix would be warmly welcomed and I can give more examples if that would help. Although it's not Firefox related, I did restore all defaults in Chrome and it didn't fix the issue there either.

I uninstalled the most recent Windows Update since the problem is recent but it didn't change anything. I'm not sure if browsers would even look to my computers fonts.

Hi,

I'm using Firefox 41.0.1 on Linux Mint.

I've noticed that the browser is showing up wrong Unicode font characters/icons. The attached pictures show what I see in Firefox (wrong foreign characters) and what I see in a different browser on the same platform (right icons, as expected).

So I'm wondering how to correct this behaviour. Also, the option "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above" is checked.

Thanks in advance!

On a website that lets you customize certain pages, I've noticed that I can't see certain fonts correctly. On a page that I was customizing, I was using a papyrus font. It seems to work fine for others but I don't see that font on my screen. The first image is what you're supposed to see and the second is what I see.

And on some sites, I don't see the fav icon in tabs.

I've tried hard refreshing, restarting the session, restarting my computer, and updating firefox, even though it was already up to date. I feel like I'm missing a plugin or something and I'm not sure what to do. Thanks.

I have an old Toshiba satellite laptop that is running win 7 and FF 42.0. I have always had a problem with the text on certain web pages (including the text I'm typing right now) being so light that I can hardly read it. I can't include a screen shot because I don't seem to have Paint on this computer. Does anyone know how I could remedy this? Thank you.

After upgrading Firefox I have a variety of display errors with websites, some worse than others. IE and Chrome do not have these problems. I have tried refreshing Firefox and I have twice deleted it and re-downloaded the program with no improvement. Sometimes the errors disappear after moving the cursor over the problem. I cannot find anything on the Forum which fixes the problem. I am attaching some screen shots to illustrate the problem.

Hi,

I would like to ask you about an issue that i have at my personal business website and it's appearance at mozilla firefox 42 version on my desktop. A few strings appear with line through text decoration and i can't understand the reason. The really strange thing is that the same strings look normally at my laptop's browser.

I attach you some screenshots to check the problem. My website is www.webfish.gr and the problem appears at the following URL's :

- http://www.webfish.gr/i-etaireia/ - http://www.webfish.gr/nea/

Please give me some advice on the issue.

Thanx in advance.

Since a week I can no longer open firefox, without crashing. I have tried it several times in safe mode or to rebuild FF.

Also a clean install did not work r may not import data at the clean install, is all. To do this, I had my firefox profile and also the folder which was just created rebuilding FF. What can I do now to make sure I get it working again?
