Since the last (?) update, sometime in the spring months this year, Firefox has not been able to display website fonts correctly. Often times part of the fonts turn to question marks, and the problem just turned even worse: even sites that I use regulary turned to complete mess – ALL TEXT. What the hell is wrong?

And NO, preference settings have no effect whatsoever.

Hi, i have font rendering issues on some websites.

I found out it has something to do with the Hardware Acceleration.

When I turn it off, everyting is ok.

However, then other websites which require more performance are really slow.

How can I fix the big without turning off hardware acceleration?

This website among others causes font issues with hardware acceleration ON:

I deselect the setting "allow webpage to choose their own webfonts...", it solves the problem but it cause to switch to default fonts in web design tools I use (wordpress, elementor). Any suggestion of how to solve this? Thanks

It displays strange characters on pages including Yahoo mail. The attached screen shot shows a bank email, but it happens with other non-secure stuff too like general web pages. This has been happening with version 81.0 and the previous version. If I open the same page in Chrome, it will display the characters normally. I did see the strange characters appear in Chrome one time, but it happens in FF quite frequently.

When working on a site I noticed I'm seeing what looks like squiggly lines for the dates. The created date is - 3/31/2020 and the start date is - 4/2/2020. But for some reason its shows the way it does in the attached image. I also noticed that its not showing formatting for Portuguese. Everything seems fine in Chrome on the mac, and Firefox for Windows 10.

Hi, I'm just working on a new website, and I noticed something odd that happens only when I open the site via Firefox. On browsers like Safari and Chrome the rgb hex colour looks identical as in Adobe Photoshop or Apple Pages, where I created content, but Firefox seems to oversaturate the fonts quite nasty for some reason.

I attachted you a screenshot where it should be very visible. If this is a bug, is it possible to get this fixed soon? I don't really want to put a warning on my website for Firefox users if possible.

I recently had a font management program affect the fonts on my computer in an unexpected and unwanted manner. Immediately after this happened Firefox was no longer rendering type correctly on a number of webpages. Some were completely compromised with "Last Resort" (i.e., rounded boxes with question marks for each character) replacing all text, and some with only certain portions affected. At the time I did not check other browsers to see if/how they were affected.

I replaced/reinstalled the Mac system fonts, and reinstalled around 90% of the additional fonts that I've collected over the years, however, Firefox was still having issues. At this point I uninstalled Firefox and pulled down a fresh copy, cleared all caches, and checked both Chrome and Safari. Firefox is still not working correctly and the other two browsers show no sign of the problem (if they ever had it all). Attached are screen shots of my My Yahoo! page in Chrome and Firefox showing the results of the issue.

I would really love to keep using Firefox, but this problem would be a deal breaker.

Cheers Randy

Accented characters appear with extra accent mark: ´á ´é ´í ´ó ´ú (intermittently).

After Firefox has been open more than a few minutes, usually with at least two or three windows and/or tabs open, when I try to type accented characters (á, é, í, ó, ú Á É Í Ó Ú) they come out with an extra accent mark preceding the accented letter (´á ´é ´í ´ó ´ú). I usually have a WebWhatsApp window open.

This doesn't happen in other browsers or other programs that take text.

At the same time, the Ctrl+F (for find) function stops working. If I close all of the windows, and attempt to reopen Firefox, I get an error that says that Firefox is still running, and do I want to close it? I say yes, and it closes. And for a short or longer while, the problems go away. Then they come back.


Using Spanish (Mexico) language and Latin American keyboard, with Español (Mexico) language pack installed.

Lenovo Flex 3 -1570 laptop, Windows 10 Home v. 1803 . Updated Firefox Quantum 66.0.5. Had Firefox "optimized" a few times by my Lenovo tech support subscription service. No effect.
