After upgrading to Firefox 68.6.0esr, when we open a Japanese file with [File]->[Open], it becomes garbled and unreadable. Before upgrading, we could read the Japanese file. This file is a plain text file and the character code is ISO-2022-JP. The character code is not specified in the file. I tried to change the character code with Text Encoding menu of Firefox, but the menu is grayed out and we cannot select it. It seems that files with character codes UTF and EUC can be displayed without problems. Is there a way to correctly display a Japanese file in which no character code is specified?

Regards,


Regards,

It displays strange characters on pages including Yahoo mail. The attached screen shot shows a bank email, but it happens with other non-secure stuff too like general web pages. This has been happening with version 81.0 and the previous version. If I open the same page in Chrome, it will display the characters normally. I did see the strange characters appear in Chrome one time, but it happens in FF quite frequently.

When I visit https://online.kasikornbankgroup.com/K-Online/indexHome.jsp, and click the K-Cyber Banking tab, all I see is what is shown in attachment 1 - symbols and the View | Text encoding is greyed out. I am unable to see my accounts. This issue started with Firefox 83.0 and people on some other forums have reported the same issue.

The tab should look more like attachment 2.

Does anyone know what is causing this, whether it is a browser problem or bank problem, and if there is a fix for it?

On FoxNews.com, some articles include a section at the bottom for user comments. First-level comments frequently receive additional second- and third-level comments.

First-level comments are working fine, but lower-level comments are partially obliterated with a string of black diamonds with question marks �?U��N�@?�.

This is not an issue when I use Safari, but it is on Firefox.

I am having these strange symbols instead of the correct fonts in some webpages as well as inside some e-mail text in gmail (when viewing from browser firefox, of course). Please see attached. I deselect the setting "allow webpage to choose their own webfonts...", it solves the problem but it cause to switch to default fonts in web design tools I use (wordpress, elementor). Any suggestion of how to solve this? Thanks

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.

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:

For the last few versions of FF (currently on 88.0.1 (64-bit) OSX Big Sur) certain websites display text incorrectly where the text is bold and each character is offset with the next one (see attached Images).

It only seems to happen to certain websites and happens both within my web based email and on standard websites - but only some of them.

I've attached a photo of the issue in my webmail - I'm viewing an email sent to me using mailchimp, but even this is inconsistent as other emails using mailchimp are fine. And as I said before it happens on websites too (examples attached).

I have this issue on my 2020 iMac and my 2020 M1 MacBook Air but not on my 2019 iMac. All 3 are running latest version of FF and all synced to my FF account and have all the same settings. Attached photo of plugins/extensions installed too.

Please help me fix this it's so frustrating!

Thanks

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.

When I open a website using special symbols, the symbols are replaced by a sign with 6 hex symbols in it.

It even happens when the symbol is used in the page title (see image). Site used: https://emojipedia.org/yawning-face/).

Interestingly, other emojis from the same site are displayed correctly (means the '01F971'-type symbol is replaced by the emoji, in all occurrences on the site and title)

I have seen multiple threads about this, even on this site. However, I could not solve it with the suggested solutions. What I have tried so far:

1. Disable addons 2. Make sure fonts are downloaded through settings 3. about:config -> gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled -> make sure its true (4. no-script is not installed)


Any ideas?
