How to set the font that SuperNova will show the text correctly

I have a problem with the use of Firefox with Supernova. Supernova is a program for visual handicaped people which allows you to enlarge the desktop. When you visit the page

http://www.raadvanstate.nl/uitspraken/zoeken-in-uitspraken/tekst-uitspraak.html?id=73735&summary_onl...

you will see some orange colored text in the main text block. This is shown correctly. However when I enlarge the screen with Supernova this orange text is barely readable due to the fact that the letters seems to built of dots instead of a smooth line.

Note that that even happens with this page where I enter these details of the questions. When Supernove enlarges rhe screen, the texts outside the textbox are horrible while the text in this textbox is good.

I ask this question here because when I use Internet Explorer this problem does not occur.

I've tried to make a screenprint, but the screenprint functionality doesn't "see" that the screen is enlarged. So when I zoom to 100% with Supernova, the text in the screenshot seems to be okay.

I realise that this is a difficult issue to reproduce but any help is welcome. Note that enlarging the font with the Firefox options is not a real option for me. Supernova enlarges the complete screen, not only the text on the webpage. This way I'm also able to see the menu's / bookmarks of Firefox itself.

Thank, you very much, Hans

You can use an extension to set a default font size and page zoom on web pages.

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

Thank, you very much. The hardware acceleration caused the problem.
