Fonts on certain sites are odd
Certain websites font's have gone weird in Firefox, it's not reproducable on other computers just my own.
I have looked through this community and run through:
Set gfx.canvas.azure.backends & gfx.content.azure.backends to direct2d1.1,skia,cairo Set gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.rendering_mode to 0 Set gfx.downloadable_fonts.otl_validation to true Disabled hardware acceleration
Firefox Version is: 90.0.2 64-bit Windows 10 21H1 All drivers are up to date
Attached are screenshots from Chrome (what the website is meant to look like) & Firefox - I prefer Firefox over Chrome so I would rather not move.
Type about:preferences#general<enter> in the address bar. Across from fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. On the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own.
Make sure you haven't enabled a High Contrast theme in the OS settings.

This is already ticked - I havent got High contrast settings set either on Windows 10 - It's default (I dont like to mess with the themes)
It looks that Firefox is using a condensed or narrow font variant.
You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the builtin Inspector with this element selected.
You can check in the Rules tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font-family is used for selected text. You can check in the Font tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font is actually used because Firefox might be using a different font than specified by the website.
It's using Helvetica Compressed, yet i've looked into the source code for this site and they dont use it
Found another website this happens on - Facebook's login page.
There have been posts on reddit about Helvetica fonts. One user was advised to delete the particular fonts from his computer. I will post the link separately as it has to be moderated.
- 1714197 - font-family "Helvetica" displays the "Compressed" variant if base variants not installed
