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.

Hello,

It is not the first time I got that error. I have no idea why.

When I want to start Firefox, this blank window appears (see image). When I click the button or close the window, nothing happens except the window being closed.

I tried to reinstall Firefox, and the autolaucher after the installation opens a Firefox window but, if I close it, I see the error window again when I try to open the program later.

I tried to reset the taskbar's shortcut with the new-one-time-only-working-window-following-the-reinstallation but this did not work.

Please, check for this error. I can not just wait for the program to be ok to run without any logical reason/explanation.

Hello, since quite some time now, I've got a problem with some websites, https://www.20minutes.fr/ among them. With other website, it's all good.

In safe mode, the display is good, but I can't seem to find the responsible for this problem. Here's two picture to show you the problem. It's the same article, one in safe mode, the other one in normal mode

I've tried to run Firefox without any add-on, but, it's the same. My é and è, and à are gone... And it's not on every website, just a few ones.

I've also tried to clean firefox, the problem remains.


Thanks in advance for your time.

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:

On FoxNews.com, some articles include a section at the bottom for user comments. First-level comments frequently receive additional second- and third-level comments.

First-level comments are working fine, but lower-level comments are partially obliterated with a string of black diamonds with question marks �?U��N�@?�.

This is not an issue when I use Safari, but it is on Firefox.

Hello,

I have a problem displaying fonts in FireFox. At some websites they are badly readable. In Chrome I do not have this issue. I already browsed several solutions. If I switch off "llow Web Sites To Choose Their Own" it works for the website in the screenshot that is then correct (same as chrome) but other website (like ads.google.com) then have problems.

Safe Mode did not make a difference.

Also I tried this "exe" file to set windows font, which I forgot the whole file name. Also did not work. I have it not only at one website but it happens more often.

I use the most recent FireFox for windows 93.0 (64-bits) The website as an example is https://www.retourplaza.nl/152006-broodbakmachine.html And then any PDP (product detail page)

Image FireFox with bad readable font on top. The chrome one is the bottom picture.

https://imgur.com/a/MM4x63e

As written I have it on more websites.

Thanks for helping out.

How do I enlarge the font size in gmail? It was suddenly much smaller when I opened it a few days ago. I enlarged it to 18 in Preferences, but when I tried to increase the percentage of enlargement from 133%, it went back to the smaller size. Then the window for increasing percentages disappeared. I see a lot of people are complaining that their font size also spontaneously changed, usually to a smaller size. I am also visually impaired, so this is a real problem.

For the last few versions of FF (currently on 88.0.1 (64-bit) OSX Big Sur) certain websites display text incorrectly where the text is bold and each character is offset with the next one (see attached Images).

It only seems to happen to certain websites and happens both within my web based email and on standard websites - but only some of them.

I've attached a photo of the issue in my webmail - I'm viewing an email sent to me using mailchimp, but even this is inconsistent as other emails using mailchimp are fine. And as I said before it happens on websites too (examples attached).

I have this issue on my 2020 iMac and my 2020 M1 MacBook Air but not on my 2019 iMac. All 3 are running latest version of FF and all synced to my FF account and have all the same settings. Attached photo of plugins/extensions installed too.

Please help me fix this it's so frustrating!

Thanks

It's probably something I did to myself. I never had it before, but I did a clean install of the latest version and now I have a layer of type on top of a layer of type (see attached screen shot). Now I already have slight double vision in my right eye, so this new phenomena isn't helpful, but it's not my eye,. both eyes see the two fonts in use overlaid.

It probably is caused something I did wrong???

I've looked around and I can't find it; it may be hiding in front of me, but I've looked through settings several times and nothing pops out as something that would result in this. Any suggestions?

To me it looks like two different fonts and sizes. It does make it more difficult to surf.

Thanks in advance, Dean
