Hello there

I do have a problem with some of the the fonts' rendering without antialiasing, as I think, and that makes them pretty ugly. The problem appears to be only with Firefox; the same fonts on Chrome, Internet Explorer, Brave browser or even Pale Moon does not exist. When it comes to Pale Moon, it required some setting to be changed in about:config but eventually, everything rendered neatly.

As far as Firefox in concerned, I have tried to use numerous different solutions but none seemed to work. I'll try to list the tutorials that I have tried. My system is Windows 7 x64 Home Premium, Firefox is the latest version from the stable releases, 45.0.1 right now, I think. Laptop is Acer Aspire 5749Z with Intel Pentium B960 and Intel GMA 2000 graphics. I do have the latest drivers for the graphics card installed. Windows' ClearType is on. Hardware Acceleration is currently on, tried turning if off, nothing helped.

Here is an exaple of a badly rendered font: https://i.imgur.com/70uGPQm.png ("Grids") and here is the link to the page: http://purecss.io/grids/

I have tried the following: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/3gtnnq/font_rendering_issues_ff40/ http://www.askvg.com/how-to-disable-hardware-acceleration-gpu-rendering-in-mozilla-firefox-4-0-to-fix-font-problem/ https://support.mozilla.org/pl/questions/1111253 — I have the Windows Updates mentioned here installed. Rest of the tutorials concerned pretty much the same things, i.e. turning the Direct2D on or off.

My thanks and regards Greg

После нескольких попыток ввести пароль на телефоне (из-за Т9 они были неудачны), получил сообщение "Лимит попыток превышен". Теперь не могу подключиться ни на телефоне, ни на другом компьютере. Как долго эта блокировка продлится? И можно ли её отключить (хотя бы временно)? Спасибо.

Why does the "Check your plug-ins" page keep reporting well-known plug-ins as unknown?

For as long as I can remember, only Adobe Flash Player and Silverlight are known, while Google Earth Plugin, iTunes Application Detector, Picasa, Microsoft Office 2010, and Google Update are always reported to me as unknown. These latter five strike me as plug-ins that are not obscure and are likely to be in lots of users' browsers, and further, that they are provided by companies who would likely provide straightforward ways to perform automated checking of version numbers.

I grant that Mozilla cannot be expected to keep up with every conceivable plug-in, but it seems to me that, if the page/service is going to be helpful (and worth featuring in the newsletter, and so on), then some more effort should be put into it. As the old saying goes, anything worth doing is worth doing right.

If this is a case of "we know what has to be done, it's easy, but we just don't have the person-power," I'd be happy to volunteer my help.

Recently the fonts on my Google Docs and on some Gmail are looking pixelated. I did a lot of troubleshooting including safe mode, refresh firefox, clean reinstall. What I did was I copied the profile folder (with the long string for a name) to desktop and deleted the folder in firefox program files. I then added in piece by piece back into the profile until I isolated the problem. It is clear the the issue is in the PREF file. However I have no idea what there is in the file to change short of deleting it (and losing all my settings, extension settings etc.) which I do not want to do. Is there a particular change I can make to the pref file to rectify the matter? I am attaching a sample of what I am seeing in the font. I will also attach a sample of what it looks like in Chrome (which is what it should look like) Well the upload of the images is not working so I will submit the question without it.

Recently The Mozilla Firefox ESR browser was upgraded to Version 52.0 and I faced "few critical issues after updating".

"Few existing functionality is not working which was working perfectly before the update."

Error : JavaScript/jquery Error was thrown in Mozilla Firefox ESR browser Version 52.0 browser console alike “contains is not a function”.


But that "contain function" is working in previous Firefox ESR version.

So when I uninstalled the Mozilla Firefox ESR browser Version 52.0 and installed the Firefox ESR browser version 45.6.0. Here all my functionalities are working perfectly in Mozilla Firefox ESR browser Version 45.6.0.

Note: I am using jquery-1.7.2


I am not sure "Higher Version" than 52.0 of Mozilla Firefox ESR has also owned this same problem.

and also I am not sure, whether the "contains" is the only function which is not working but not aware of other functions.


Please let me know, 1. why am I facing this problem in the Mozilla Firefox ESR version 52.0? 2. what should I do to avoid this issue? 3. if possible, from which version to which version having this problem?


Kindly acknowledge to this.
