Within the last 1-2 weeks some fonts in emails have been displaying pixelated, these are websites I use every day and they were perfect resolution before.

I have not changed any settings in firefox. I have cleared cache and done fresh reinstall of firefox and the issue persists. I have also been through trouble shooting with individual website supports and they cannot resolve the problem. The issue seems to be with firefox as these display ok on Chrome. I have made sure my zoom is 100% and to remove formatting from the emails.

I am not sure what else to try or what settings to check as I haven't personally changed settings myself. Maybe something new in recent updates?

Hi, if you had chosen to share information I would have seen Extensions and Video Card Drivers and what shape those drivers where in. Not that it matters much on a Mac.

Please try a Refresh but Note that this does more than uninstalling and re-installing does. Normal uninstalling does not remove some preferences which may have become corrupt. Please Refresh but do this 1st:
