I've tried to search and found some other posts about this, but not a ton... leading me to believe there is something wrong.
Issue: Fonts on some sites are too heavy/bold (vs appearing correctly on Chrome/Chromium browsers) Environment: Windows 10 or 11, Firefox stable (currently 105.0.1) Example site: https://www.subaruoutback.org (this is not the only one, just an example) Workaround(s): I can do one of two things... I can either enforce browser fonts globally, which fixes the issue but then also break some sites in other ways or I can use an add-on to let me selectively enforce browser fonts as needed (which is what I am doing).
Screenshots attached, this is my experience on multiple PCs (Windows 10 and 11). One image is from Firefox, one is from Chrome.
On some sites, it isn't a huge deal... maybe just looks bad but is functionally fine. On some sites the issue is more impactful and actually creates readability issues.
Of course I can continue to work around the issue, but ideally I would like to fix it.
I did read that there are some changes site owners can make for font handling, but obviously requesting that sort of thing isn't realistic in a general sense.
