On some websites the fonts are all displaying in a large bold text instead of whatever font that page is meant to use. It will revert to a default font if i turn off the ability for sites to choose their own fonts, but this interferes with the functionality of a lot of sites' icons so its not a great solution. This also stops when i go into troubleshooting mode, but when i went through hardware acceleration and my extensions one by one, none of them were the cause.

images in order: my roll20 homepage with the incorrect font display, the same page with fonts disabled (note the notification icons in the upper right are broken now though), the same page in troubleshoot mode with the correct font display

I've been browsing some coding sites to learn a bit and I've noticed that the text boxes they use to display the code or the way they format it, is not showing the numbers properly. Like how sometimes instead of 3 it'll just be A and zeros don't show. Commented code seems to fine.

I'm getting two lines of print (one on top of the other) on many (not all) lines on most websites

It's probably something I did to myself. I never had it before, but I did a clean install of the latest version and now I have a layer of type on top of a layer of type (see attached screen shot). Now I already have slight double vision in my right eye, so this new phenomena isn't helpful, but it's not my eye,. both eyes see the two fonts in use overlaid.

It probably is caused something I did wrong???

I've looked around and I can't find it; it may be hiding in front of me, but I've looked through settings several times and nothing pops out as something that would result in this. Any suggestions?

To me it looks like two different fonts and sizes. It does make it more difficult to surf.

Thanks in advance, Dean

Hi, To start with I love your browser been using and recommending it for many years. I am a service provider and have a customer that started getting this in her Firefox browser. Started a few weeks ago. Hard to describe the attachment will show more. There is a image box link. No image shows in any of them but clicked on it does go to the url. The url address is right after it. They are partially imposed over part of the description of the web site. Now my Firefox browser on my machine does not look like this. Is this a setting I need to disable to return it to normal and remove this little image box at the beginning? Or is there a problem with the browser? Thank you for your time and help. SEBassman

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.

I need to allow 2 sites (so far) to choose their own font styles and sizes, but most of the rest drive me bananas and are difficult to read, I've tried installing 'Stylish' but that just offers a list of styles for specific sites (like YouTube and GMail etc) made by coding type people.

That's not me.

Didn't there used to be something that let you change fonts and colours when you had the site page open? There was a pane to one side that gave you a preview of what your adjustments would look like - what can I use like that for FireFox 36?

A complex website I created suddenly has multiple Windows Mozilla users complaining that the font size is smaller in Web forms. They've sent me screen shots and it's true. They say this occurred around Wednesday August 19, 2015.

No changes have been made to the website. There are a production and a test website and the problem exists in both places. The problem exists only on Mozilla on Windows, and multiple individual users have experienced it.

I have verified the font looks smaller on Mozilla. There is no such problem in Google Chrome.

Did an automatic update perhaps change the default font size? Possibly only the font size inside Web form fields?

Currently I am using Firefox 40 on Windows 10. Some Turkish characters are not displayed with the same style and size. I attach a screenshot to exemplify it.

Most commonly Firefox show Turkish characters with a different font in disproportionate size with respect to the rest of the text. Sometimes even the diacritic marks are scattered around. Like ü being rendered as u¨ , sometime the diacritic is above another letter. I can assume sometimes this error is due to lack of Turkish characters in the font set. Browsers usually show the closest font having the said characters. But Firefox does this very very sloppily. The problem appears to be branching out, Chrome sometimes may show all the page with a different font set, but most of the time it generates a uniform appearance of Turkish sentences. Edge and Firefox have common distortion issues mostly, but there are a few cases where Firefox still displays distorted but Edge/IE shows correctly.
