On a handful of pages the font is oversized and overlapping and making the page completely unreadable. This only happens in FF. IE renders these pages just fine. I've tried some of the suggestions in other threads, like disabling hardware acceleration and changing the page style. None of this works. Any suggestions.
Actually, I kept working at the problem and started looking at Zoom as the problem. Hitting Ctl+0 didn't do anything. Then I started investigating one of my Add-ons, NoSquint. It's a widget that allows for the resizing of websites and keeping them all straight. Well, it was screwing up a number of websites and when I disabled it, they showed just fine. albeit rather small looking at the standard 100%. I mean, what's the point of having a 24 inch monitor if the pages only fill 50% of the screen in the middle and the text is so small you can't read it? So I looked and found an add-on called Default Zoom Level and tried it out. Problem solved. Why FF can't make their Zoom capabilities as easy to use as this is beyond me. Anyway, thanks for the help. Your suggestions dealing with Zoom got me to looking in the right place.
