Some websites don't display certain letters. Currently, I'm experiencing this problem on thekitchn.com, where the letter "y" isn't displaying. Here's an example sentence, "These steps might seem prett obvious, and for the most part the are, but there’s critical strateg within each of them." I've tried this particular website on Chrome, and have the same problem. However, on Safari all the letters are displayed.

Not all websites behave this way on FF. Out of the seven tabs I have open, only one isn't displaying correctly.

The extensions I have running are: - AdBlock Plus - Facebook Container - Epub Reader - Firefox Colour - Firefox Multi-Account Containers - Privacy Badger - Share Button for Facebook - Side View - SuperStop - To Google Translate - Tree Style Tab

Here are the steps I've taken to test and fix the problem: - To test if the problem is with the website itself, I copied and pasted the words elsewhere, and missing the letter is displayed. - I restarted FF in Safe Mode, but the problem persisted. - I deleted FF from applications, downloaded v.75.0 and installed that. No go.

I'm on a Mac.

Not sure what to do now. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello,

I noticed a few hours ago that my Google search in Japanese was now displayed in an ugly font I have no memory of (could not identify it, attached a screenshot just in case).

I tried to change my settings for Japanese in Languages and Appearance, but no matter what, this unknown font remains the apparent default on sites such as SUMO and google.com.

I just refreshed Firefox to no avail.

Am I not looking in the right place?

I have run Firefox in Safe Mode, and I still get the crashes, often on a Checkout page after getting an order together. My software is updated to the latest versions available, and I have kept my security up to date. If we cannot find a fix to stop all this crashing, I'll have to give up on Firefox as being highly unreliable. Since I am totally blind, RELIABILITY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME!

Hello

After updating Firefox to 74.0 (x64) at Windows 10 Home x64 (1909) I'm encountering a problem with displaying of certain latin-extended symbols. They seem to display in different weight or completely different font than all the other text. It happens on several sites only, e.g. messenger.com. I did not care about ugliness of this bug, but since it also appears in my Joomle admin panel, it really has influence of my workflow.

What's the problem

  • characters ąęćńśżź display different than all the others on certain websites (1. on the screenshot)

What I've tried to fix it

  • running ClearType wizard
  • checking if hardware acceleratin is on - it is on
  • changing **gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.rendering_mode** to different values
  • checked "Allow sites to use fonts different than used here" option - it is on (2. on the screenshot)
  • tried privacy mode to avoid possible cache problems - did not help
  • (edit) updated drivers for GeForce card

Any help well appreciated. My regards! Grzegorz

I can browse web pages fine, but I cannot gain access to login to my FireFox Account. I have had to use another browser to post this as I needed to login to my Forefox Account in order to do so.

Why am I seen these symbols?

Today when I started Firefox it auto-updated to version 77, and all web-pages looked like a mess of weird symbols like the ones in the screenshot I attached.

I tried disabling all addons and plugins, and some other stuff but nothing worked.

So I downgraded to 76.0.1 and everything works fine, it's definetly a problem with version 77.

I guess I won't be updating until I know this problem was adressed.

Since a few updates the fonts on a few webpages got kind of blurry (see that on the attached picture). I have not changed anything related to fonts in Windows settings and Firefox settings. It just happened from one day to another, can't remember exactly when unfortunately. Since then Facebook somehow got back to it's normal font, but other pages like Linustechtips and FB Messenger are still blurry.

Hello all! i have had this niggly problem for a while now. so in the firefox search bar, the hisroty of the websites visited does not render properly it's the same with the firefox OPTIONS page, some text is invisible. you can select and copy and paste it, but can't see it, looks like it's highlighted white-on-white it's the same story for some websites, only on and off sometimes, re-loading the webpage makes it work but you cannot always do that, e.g in the middle of a financial transaction i have tried resetting firefox completely uninstalling/reinstalling nothing works only happens on my windows 7 machine, my ubuntu firefox works fine i am pulling my hair out hehe

would be great to hear any suggestions of how to fix this

I just upgraded to to Mac OS Catalina and Firefox 75, and I've noticed two very strange and specific problems on certain websites.

-On Wikipedia the number 9 is displayed as an underscore _ So the year 1669 looks like 1__9, etc.

-On Blogger, in the compose mode, typing lowercase y makes nothing appear, and typing lowercase z produces quotation marks!

I tried using a different (brand new) keyboard, and the problem remained.

I tried those two websites in the Safari browser, and there were no problems.
