Hi, i have font rendering issues on some websites.

I found out it has something to do with the Hardware Acceleration.

When I turn it off, everyting is ok.

However, then other websites which require more performance are really slow.

How can I fix the big without turning off hardware acceleration?

This website among others causes font issues with hardware acceleration ON:

This has happened on several of my computers. Upgrading from some version of FF80 to some version of FF90 results in gibberish text.

What Mac OS system fonts does Firefox require? I somehow got this fixed on one system, but many monthds ago, so I don't know what actually worked. I have cleaned font caches, etc. but cannot get it fixed on the latest so far. Settings are Latin, normal fonts like Georgia or Verdana.

How do I enlarge the font size in gmail? It was suddenly much smaller when I opened it a few days ago. I enlarged it to 18 in Preferences, but when I tried to increase the percentage of enlargement from 133%, it went back to the smaller size. Then the window for increasing percentages disappeared. I see a lot of people are complaining that their font size also spontaneously changed, usually to a smaller size. I am also visually impaired, so this is a real problem.

I've read some complaints about the font that FF desktop uses on some websites. I'm seeing a very annoying font with some letters thicker (almost bold) and other letters thin. This occurs, for example, on the mozilla.org website and when FF is displaying a PDF.

I have "allow pages to choose their own fonts" checked, and I am not using hardware acceleration.

I went into the developer console and turned off the Mozilla-supplied font for a support webpage, and it then used something like a Times New Roman, but it was uniform in letter thickness.

I have attached screen snips.

If I display the same page using Chrome, the font looks great, so I don't know exactly what the problem is, but it's clearly a FF problem.

Notice in Chrome that the word "garbled" is in bold, and it does not appear in bold in either of the FF font examples.

It's probably something I did to myself. I never had it before, but I did a clean install of the latest version and now I have a layer of type on top of a layer of type (see attached screen shot). Now I already have slight double vision in my right eye, so this new phenomena isn't helpful, but it's not my eye,. both eyes see the two fonts in use overlaid.

It probably is caused something I did wrong???

I've looked around and I can't find it; it may be hiding in front of me, but I've looked through settings several times and nothing pops out as something that would result in this. Any suggestions?

To me it looks like two different fonts and sizes. It does make it more difficult to surf.

Thanks in advance, Dean

Hello,

I have a problem displaying fonts in FireFox. At some websites they are badly readable. In Chrome I do not have this issue. I already browsed several solutions. If I switch off "llow Web Sites To Choose Their Own" it works for the website in the screenshot that is then correct (same as chrome) but other website (like ads.google.com) then have problems.

Safe Mode did not make a difference.

Also I tried this "exe" file to set windows font, which I forgot the whole file name. Also did not work. I have it not only at one website but it happens more often.

I use the most recent FireFox for windows 93.0 (64-bits) The website as an example is https://www.retourplaza.nl/152006-broodbakmachine.html And then any PDP (product detail page)

Image FireFox with bad readable font on top. The chrome one is the bottom picture.

https://imgur.com/a/MM4x63e

As written I have it on more websites.

Thanks for helping out.

Since the last (?) update, sometime in the spring months this year, Firefox has not been able to display website fonts correctly. Often times part of the fonts turn to question marks, and the problem just turned even worse: even sites that I use regulary turned to complete mess – ALL TEXT. What the hell is wrong?

And NO, preference settings have no effect whatsoever.

Hi there,

I've just downloaded the dev version of Firefox, and for some reason some of the text defaults to italics; I can't see where to change this. On all other browsers, this text is not italic.

Does anyone have an explanation / solution?

The non-italic text in the picture attached is the 'good text' which accurately reflects itself accross browsers and devices. The italic text is the 'bad text' that I want to change for consistency.

Thanks!

On some websites the fonts are all displaying in a large bold text instead of whatever font that page is meant to use. It will revert to a default font if i turn off the ability for sites to choose their own fonts, but this interferes with the functionality of a lot of sites' icons so its not a great solution. This also stops when i go into troubleshooting mode, but when i went through hardware acceleration and my extensions one by one, none of them were the cause.

images in order: my roll20 homepage with the incorrect font display, the same page with fonts disabled (note the notification icons in the upper right are broken now though), the same page in troubleshoot mode with the correct font display

Hello,

It is not the first time I got that error. I have no idea why.

When I want to start Firefox, this blank window appears (see image). When I click the button or close the window, nothing happens except the window being closed.

I tried to reinstall Firefox, and the autolaucher after the installation opens a Firefox window but, if I close it, I see the error window again when I try to open the program later.

I tried to reset the taskbar's shortcut with the new-one-time-only-working-window-following-the-reinstallation but this did not work.

Please, check for this error. I can not just wait for the program to be ok to run without any logical reason/explanation.
