Yahoo results messed up!

Hello everybody. I'm having a problem with Yahoo: when I do a research, the pages' description overlays the titles, in a way that makes it impossible to read the name of the website... Could I change something to Firefox to solve this issue? Best, Andrea

[v56+] Type about:preferences#general<enter> in the address box. Under fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. Scroll to the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own.

Make sure you haven't enabled a High Contrast theme in the OS settings.

  • We have seen reports that this can be caused by a problem with fonts like Roboto or Helvetica that

you have installed locally and that might be corrupted or are missing some variants. Also, make sure you allow pages to choose their own fonts and that you do not block remote (downloadable) fonts.

  • If you use uBlock Origin make sure not to "block remote fonts".

Hi Andrea, I think this is caused by an add-on that injects little rating or safety icons on your search results-- the little green thing at the left under the text. I think it started a month or two ago, so maybe there is an update available by now?
