My Firefox menus and tabs and text are all warped and slightly out of focus for lack of a better term. What kind of issue is this. I only have the default theme/persona Strata installed. It's quite annoying.

My tabs and text seem slightly corrupted. There's an apparent curviture to the corners and the tops bow. The text is affected but the font's don't appear to have been edited to different fonts. It looks like some photoshop corruption effect to be honest, but this just happens to firefox everytime I use it now. It comes up normal for a second then 'fades' into this corrupt looking version.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

In Firefox 4 Safe mode disables extensions and disables hardware acceleration.
If disabling hardware acceleration works then check if there is an update available for your graphics display driver.

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"

In Firefox 4 you can use one of these to start in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode:

  • Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
  • Hold down the Shift key while double clicking the Firefox desktop shortcut (Windows)
