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

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.

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.

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?

Hi

I've suddenly noticed that my fonts in FireFox are very blocky (no antialias). I'm sure this happened after a restart but not sure why.

I've checked the zoom factor of the page and I can confirm that this is at 100% / Reset

When I went to check my version it updated so this problem exists across 4.6 and 4.5.? (didn't catch the last number before it updated).

I've check windows (all fonts are fine)

I've check another browser (Chrome at the same page.. this is fine).

I'm posting this question/request for help as other posts I've found related do not quite match my issue.

Please find attached a screen shot of the issue (FireFox is to the left and Chrome to the right)

(Upload seems to be caught up, I'll reply to this msg if it doesn't show)

Many thanks J

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.
