hello,

since today I notice that all text in firefox (56.0 mac-version) on certain sites appears only in question marks (in suqares). looks like that on sites like mozilla support (busy right now in safari) google.com, my banking site, tmobile, gmail and a lot other ones too. all those sites show totally normal in other brouwsers.

did the following troubleshoot 1) view > text encoding > unicode = OK 2) preferences Font & Color > advanced > checked 'allow pages to choose their own font' = OK

any other suggestions? (:

tried to enclose some screenshots (small jpg and png files) but the upload keeps spinning for ever... never mind.

thanks in advance for any help on the questionmark problem.

I am having a problem with viewing Japanese page like www.yahoo.co.jp in Firefox. Japanese characters are showing as square boxes with hex code and unreadable. But in other browsers IE and Chrome, Japanese characters are displaying correctly. I had already tried refresh Firefox and change font for Japanese but it didn't work.

The following are system information :

 Firefox ESR 60.2.2 en-us

Please. Can anyone help me to solve this problem?

Hello!

So, I was working on a new blog on which I'm using the Rubik font from Google fonts.

Everything was fine for several days, but today, after working for some time on it, the font just got messed up randomly (see attached image).

I added the font on a different, testing site and it shows messed up there as well, so it's not something website related.

Now, the shocking part is that it gets messed up only on Mozilla and only on the Mozilla browser that's on my Desktop PC.

I asked a friend to check it out and I also checked it out on my laptop, and the font is fine on other Mozilla browsers, as well as other browsers.

Other fonts from other websites are fine as well.

What troubleshooting I performed:

- Checked the font with Inspect Element, as it's shown here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Page_Inspector/How_to/Edit_fonts and the font is set up correctly;

- Deleted the whole history since the beginning of time (cookies, cache, everything);

- Closed and opened Firefox again;

- Opened Mozilla in Safe Mode (hardware acceleration is disabled by default in safe mode);

- Restarted my PC;

- Uninstalled Mozilla as it shows here - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/uninstall-firefox-from-your-computer. Deleted the profile folder and everything.

- Installed a fresh copy again with no add-ons, no nothing.

Nothing worked. That font is still messed up on Mozilla, on this PC.

It doesn't make any sense, especially since it went nuts randomly without a particular reason.

Does anyone have an idea of what could be the problem and how to fix it?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi there,

Certain icons are displaying as hex codes on my Mac. I've made sure that my advanced content settings allow pages to choose their own fonts. I've likewise made sure that gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled in about:config is marked true.

I've restarted Firefox in Safe Mode and the problem persists.

I've read some information about inspecting the element, but I don't know what to look for. In opening the Web Console, I get this message in the inspector sheet: "Signal: error: {"type":"script","message":"Problem loading http://platform.twitter.com/oct.js","tagId":1491995}" tag.js:2:286 Signal: error: {"type":"wait","message":"ReferenceError: twttr is not defined","tagId":1491995} tag.js:2:286

I also see a message saying "Style sheet could not be loaded."

Any suggestions for me, team?

Thanks so much!

After Firefox has been open more than a few minutes, usually with at least two or three windows and/or tabs open, when I try to type accented characters (á, é, í, ó, ú Á É Í Ó Ú) they come out with an extra accent mark preceding the accented letter (´á ´é ´í ´ó ´ú). I usually have a WebWhatsApp window open.

This doesn't happen in other browsers or other programs that take text.

At the same time, the Ctrl+F (for find) function stops working. If I close all of the windows, and attempt to reopen Firefox, I get an error that says that Firefox is still running, and do I want to close it? I say yes, and it closes. And for a short or longer while, the problems go away. Then they come back.

Hi all,

On some sites (I think it has something to do possibly with code snippets because these always display incorrectly) Firefox is showing this illegible font as per the screenshot. I've also attached a Chrome screenshot to show how it should be displaying. I have not been able to find a fix online for this. I have done the suggestions of clearing cache, checking font settings etc that I could find in the options, but made no difference. Please could anyone help? It's driving me mad because I can't make out the font at all!

Hello,

I have a trouble with font rendering on one specific website - https://www.checkpoint.com.

Text on this site looks quite ugly (see font01.png).

But if I open "Web Developer" -> "Inspector" -> "Fonts" -> "All fonts on page", then I can see the text renderred correctly in the preview field (see font02.png).

So text uses "DIN WXX Regular" font, but I do not understand, why Firefox cannot render it on the web page in the same manner as in the Developer tools?

Any clue how to fix it?

Hi

I've suddenly noticed that my fonts in FireFox are very blocky (no antialias). I'm sure this happened after a restart but not sure why.

I've checked the zoom factor of the page and I can confirm that this is at 100% / Reset

When I went to check my version it updated so this problem exists across 4.6 and 4.5.? (didn't catch the last number before it updated).

I've check windows (all fonts are fine)

I've check another browser (Chrome at the same page.. this is fine).

I'm posting this question/request for help as other posts I've found related do not quite match my issue.

Please find attached a screen shot of the issue (FireFox is to the left and Chrome to the right)

I know this question has been asked multiple times and it usually ends in the solution: Some font rendering issues are caused by graphics driver incompatibilities. Could you try disabling Firefox's use of hardware graphics acceleration?

orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Options > Advanced

On the "General" mini-tab, uncheck the box for "Use hardware acceleration when available"


However my hardware acceleration has been disabled for a long time. I've had this problem for many months and every now and then it annoys me enough to search for solutions. I've tried increasing and changing the fonts in my Content Settings. I've uninstalled and reinstalled firefox. I've checked multiple websites fonts to see where it happens since it seems to pick and choose what sites it happens on. I've even cross checked sites on Google Chrome as well to verify that this only happens with Firefox.

This leads me to think there is a bigger problem/bug in play within Firefox's Rendering Engine, Gecko.

And on some sites, I don't see the fav icon in tabs.
