Flash screens show in very tiny font and cannot be magnified. No problem with Word/Excel; just when flash screens open New Lenovo Yoga 3, upgrade from Win 8.1 to Win 10, latest Firefox 42, and Shockwave Flash 19.0. No problem in Chrome

Tried solutions: About:config changed font sizes New profile solutions Alt O, etc. Reinstall Shockwave flash Disable all add-ons Open in Safe mode

Ready for next suggestion. Thanks

I have windows 7,firefox But recenlty after upgrading firefox ,fonts are blurry and thin.really annoying for eyes. Firefox developer edition has this problem too. Graphic card is ATI Raedon 4300 series on ACER 4810tg laptop.

Please Help.

Hello people, I saw a couple threads about "boxes with numbers and letters inside" (for example, "why do sometimes text symbols appear as boxes with numbers/letters in them" and "Boxes with numbers and letters show instead of certain images on some websites"). I am using a chat service, and when my counterpart sends me some emoticons, instead of the emoticon I see the little square with HEX digits inside. The interesting part is that if I "brutally" copy-and-paste the little square, and send it over the chat, my counterpart actually sees the original emoticon! Ok, that's interesting, but my question is not about the fact that I can't see the emoticon. Actually, I wish to carry out a similar operation with control characters. More specifically, I need to send the BEL character (ASCII 7) over the chat, in order to beep my counterpart's computer, and vice versa. I already tried to type [CTRL+G] in the outbox of the chat, but it doesn't work, because instead of seeing the "^G" output that I expected, the "Find" bar is invoked... curiously, "Find" should pop up with [CTRL+F], so it seems that [CTRL+F] and [CTRL+G] do have exactly the same effect! o_O Similarly, since my counterpart often accesses the chat with an iPhone instead of PC, I think that the [CTRL+G] key combination is not suitable for the scope of beeping my computer. So I'm wondering whether there's a way to actually obtain a "somehow-visible" character corresponding to ASCII 7 that can be copied-pasted and sent over a chat, in order to "beep" one's computer. If I could somehow get a "little box with numbers in it" corresponding to "BEL"... =^_^= Thank you! :o)

I recently refreshed Firefox, and found myself suddenly dealing with an inability to clearly see and read what the letters on my screen were. I tried to change the font back to what it was, and that failed. I thought maybe refreshing again would fix the problem (I'm and optimist), but no. Changing the setting in options changes nothing in my browser. It's irritating because I don't like other browsers, but unless this can be corrected, I may have to find a new one.

I use hardware acceleration, and it works okay except for the looks that come with it on the fonts. They look jagged and "not so smooth" as they could be - and I have bad vision. I found out somewhere that they look smooth if I set either "layers.prefer-d3d9" or "gfx.direct2d.disabled" to true. How are these different if it could be explained in a simple way? The fonts look good with any of these set to "true", BUT it seems some performance is lost. Which one causes the biggest performance drop? And a second question; Is there a complete reference/documentation for all the settings in "about:config", I like a good read (and to explore settings), but it's hard when some entries have either been removed, and it's difficult to know when a new one is added... I like to know what is going on in Firefox, but finding up to date info isn't the easiest thing.

I've tried restarting Firefox on safe mode, changing themes and a few other things but I can't figure out why on some specific parts of some sites I get this strange appearance of the font used for that specific part. Like this. So I have no idea why it happens, when it happens.

On lots of websites text appear as an 'A' in a box (see screenshot - i've blurred some content due to privacy). I've gone through my preferences and checked 'Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above'. When I uncheck this box using my font selections things display fine however when I check it I get this problem. I'm a web developer so I can't override site fonts, I need them to display as intended. I've checked Chrome and Safari on my machine and they are fine so this problem is isolated to FireFox. I've tried restarting FF in safe mode but it made no difference, I went to the config page and changed network and gfx references back to 'reset' and again it doesn't make a difference.

System details: FF = 56.0 (64 bit) OSX = 10.9.5
