Slackware :: Firefox Default Fonts Will Not Display On Webpages?

Feb 12, 2010

Recently I was creating an image in GIMP when I needed to add a new font. I went to my mounted XP drive and copied the file I wanted over into /usr/X11R6/share/fonts/TTF then I went to the font installer as root and installed the font system wide. After that I reloaded GIMP and the font was available. A little while later I went to browse the internet and when I loaded up firefox, it showed a properly formatted and spaced page with no text on it at all. If I highlighted a line, the invisible text would copy to the clipboard properly and I could read it that way. I figured it might've been a just a FF issue, but when I loaded up Seamonkey, I wound up with the same problem. I'm using Firefox 3.0.16 and Seamonkey 2.0.1. I tried going into the preferences and changing the default font, but no matter what I change it to, it doesn't fix it. Slack 1.2 running kernel I use slapt-get to stay up to date and as far as I can tell i have the latest patches and pkgs.


bash-3.1$ fc-cache -rv
/usr/share/fonts/OTF: caching, new cache contents: 23 fonts, 0 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/TTF: caching, new cache contents: 91 fonts, 0 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/Type1: caching, new cache contents: 64 fonts, 0 dirs

Dec 10, 2010

I would like to know if there is a fix for firefox font menus, also the font for bookmarks, the problem is that these fonts are too big , like 16 , instead of 10 or 12

i've had this problem with all linux distros that i've used, everything is fine except the menu and bookmark fonts in firefox, same in chrome, menu and bookmark fonts are big, anything i tried i could not make it look like the normal font sizes in windows or even Konqueror. and it not that only that it is big fonts, they are also wide.

Slackware :: No Text Visible In Firefox After Fonts Additions

Nov 8, 2010

I am having some problem with fonts in some websites in firefox. The fonts will not be visible! The image should be self explanatory. Let me add that I am trying to add support for unicode in linux something that I wasn't much familiar with up until now - so I messed a few things up before I managed to unicode in linux command line and konsole terminal. Additionally, I tried adding true type fonts (which I added in a new sub-folder /usr/share/fonts/ms-ttf) and run fc-cache. Moreover, I installed the fonts system-wide from within KDE system settings. In the end: I am stuck with a semi-working firefox; facebook and digitalblasphemy to name a few don't show any fonts.

Gmail and other sites work fine. Google-chrome has not been affected at all - all pages show up fine. Also the extra 'ms-ttf' fonts that I installed in kde system-wide do not appear in libre-office in the available fonts.. I am not sure if this has to do with the more general mess I've caused or it is some more specific matter. I tried following [URL] tips in compiling firefox but I decided not to install requiredbuilder in order to proceed with the installation - I ended up installing frefox-3.6.12 from -current, but the problem persists.

Slackware :: Change Default Firefox (Save As) Window Location?

May 20, 2010

Since school ended, I decided to finally wipe and due a clean upgrade to Slackware 13.0. Everything is great except one thing. When I want to save something in firefox, the "save as" window that popups up, that allows you to browse to right directory, popups too low. In my window manager(wmii), the bottom is cutoff. I want to have the window popup higher. Is this possible? In my previous install, I think the window would usually remember where it last was, but now it seems to always popup in the same location. I'm not sure if this is slackware, firefox or wmii issue. Also I tried another wm, Awesomewm, and it showed up in the same spot.

Installation :: Webpages Don't Display Correctly, Flash And Other Plug-ins And Web Scripts Don't Operate?

Nov 4, 2010

installing a Linux distro on an old mac to make a simple desktop home computer details below.The Scenario: I am trying to breath a couple more years of life into a computer illiterate friend's Mac G4 [POS] computer, it is a paper weight but all he needs is a basic desktop and an web machine and he can't be made to buy a new one unless all other options are exhausted.

The computer: Is a Mac G4 power-PC architecture, 450 MHz, 18 GB HDD, 1024 Mb ram ugly little thing that was gotten for free it currently has mac OS 10.2 [unsupported] and newer OS-X (he is more familiarized with Mac) don't run on power-PC. Currently web pages don't display correctly, flash and other plug-ins and web scripts don't operate and it is very clunky with software bloat.

My solution? Is to install Linux so he can have a trim clean operating system. Ubuntu 10.04 [community ppc variant] runs off a live CD but is dead slow on account of the low processor power and I was unable to get gnash to run flash video a necessity as Adobe has abandoned power-PC, I suspect the gnash error is between chair and keyboard, advice is welcome. I would like to install a distro more suited to this system currently I am looking at mintPPC but can't quite follow the installation instructions what is meant by Debian squeeze the download link gives me a mini.iso is this the same thing? Also clarification on the terminal commands would be of help. Advice on a different distro is also welcome preferably one with an all in one installing process rather than the mint, Debian, Ubuntu multi-part thingy that mintPPC is; it just needs to be power PC compatible and able to run on a few hundred MHz maybe there is an easy way to put LXDE or Xcfe on a more popular Disto? As for me: I am a new Linux convert, discovering the glory this past July and am still learning my way around I am computer literate and somewhat savvy but I am not a tech head and I HATE working on them I can and do it but I don't like it and I am often hampered by ignorance of the latest new/trends and an acute allergy to Macs and Apple products in general.

Ubuntu :: Load Any Webpages On Firefox In 10.10

Dec 5, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 x64bit and am having a problem with Firefox. I'm currently dual booting windows 7 and Ubuntu. My net works perfectly on Windows 7 and even on Ubuntu I was able to download a NVIDIA driver and 193MB worth of updates for Ubuntu. I just can't seem to load any webpages on Firefox. I have DHCP enabled but I also tried a static IP address but still had no success. I also tried adjusting my proxy settings in Firefox cycling through no proxy, Auto-detect proxy settings etc. but i still could not load any pages.

The error message is always "The connection has timed out. The server at is taking too long to respond." I've tried other websites and can't load them. As a point of interest I was able to access my routers web config page.

Ubuntu :: WebPages Not Compatible With Firefox

Jul 13, 2011

I just recently had to have Ubuntu installed on my computer, and of course, the Web Browser they put on here is Firefox, which I love, however...... Before I had Ubuntu, I had Windows, but due to a problem with a nasty virus, and then not having the original product code for Windows, I couldn't get Windows back on my computer so they put lovely Ubuntu on it. Now, I am a Manager at a hotel, and I have to be able to view my hotel security cameras from home when I am not at work. It is an IP web address and it is not compatible with Firefox. My question is this. Is there any plugin out there that would make webpages that are non compatible with Firefox able to be viewed?

Ubuntu :: Programs Fail To Redirect Firefox To Webpages?

Apr 19, 2011

Since upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, I have this problem where programs to redirect me to webpages. It just loads up my home page and acts like it's finished. Even if I have Firefox previously open, nothing happens.Programs this happens with are Apport (when I try to file bug-reports), Tomboy (if I click "get add-ins"), and Liferea until I edited a setting telling it not to use the default gnome browser but to use Firefox.I know the first thing you'd think hearing that is that my web browser isn't set in my gnome default applications, but it is. When I open firefox in terminal this error pops up

Ubuntu :: Firefox Won't Redirect To Webpages From Bug Report & Others (11.04 Natty Narwhal)

Apr 6, 2011

I think from upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal. Whenever programs ask me to send reports (bug reports) they fail to redirect me to the proper launch pad bug report page. It just loads up my home page and acts like it's finished. Even if I have Firefox previously open, nothing happens.

Liferea was doing the same thing until I changed it from using the Gnome Default to Firefox. Perhaps this is a gnome default failure or something?

Slackware :: Fonts For Gnome Apps In Std Slackware Install

Jan 4, 2011

I'm interested in seeing what others are doing w.r.t. fonts in a standard Slack install. The 2 main apps I use are Firefox and Thunderbird and both look fairly poor out of the box. Previously I've used a combination of gtk-qt-engine and gnome-appearance-properties ( with a gsb install ) but this doesn't always do the 'right thing'.

Debian :: Display Of Fonts With Iceweasel And Claws

Mar 14, 2010

Some fonts or lettering produces gobble-di-gook rather than a proper display in both iceweasel and claws mail reader. Usually punctuation (like ") results in this. For instance, from the site Clean Debian Etch Install, I get the following:

Code: The �€˜Choose country or region�€™ screen will appear, select �€˜United States�€™ or your preferred country. I'm assuming the above should display as, Code: The "Choose country or region" screen will appear, select "United States" or your preferred country.

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 - How To Make Machine Display Nice Fonts

Apr 27, 2010

I just moved back to openSUSE after spending almost 2 years in ubuntu-land. What happened to the fonts? Why are they so ugly? To me it looks like they are poorly rendered. I installed openSUSE 11.2 on another computer to confirm the problem... it persists. I took some screenshots to compare my settings.

Ubuntu: [URL]
openSUSE: [URL]

The second screenshot doesn't show, but both settings are using the exact same fonts and the same size. (Except the Window title font). From those two, it should be very clear that Ubuntu renders them more nicely. I don't want to start an UbuntuopenSUSE flame.. How to make my openSUSE machine display nice fonts.. ?

Ubuntu :: Fonts So Damn Small By Default?

Aug 18, 2010

I'm 24 with excellent vision, and I'll be the first to say that DAMN Kubuntu's default font size is entirely too small! Does anybody else feel this way? By simply forcing 96 DPI it helps out quite a bit - but it's confusing that this wouldn't be enabled by default to begin with.

Fedora :: Some Of The Arial Fonts Look Not Right In Firefox 3.5?

I've installed Arial fonts as per this package:msttcore-fonts-2.0-3.noarch.rpmut why do some of the Arial fonts look not right in Firefox 3.5? It seems that Arial 10pt bold is the worst, with large spacing between the letters.In Ubuntu, using that same RPM and the same version of Firefox, the fonts look fine.I have two screen shots you can click on:1) Fedora 12 beta:Ubuntu 9.04:irefox-ubuntu.gifLook at the top left corner, "Jamieson Cottages by the River" - it's almost like the Arial 10pt bold is double spaced in Fedora.Whereas in Ubuntu, things look much better in terms of letter spacing.

Fedora :: Block Fonts In Firefox?

Aug 30, 2011

I went ahead and installed msttcorefonts because I need them for college work. However, when I have them installed, a few sites here and there like Facebook will use the font, but it'll be fuzzy, which is the complete opposite of what the free fonts did for me. I've thought about whether it would be possible to block those fonts in Firefox or only make them available in Libreoffice (the only place where I even need them), but there doesn't seem to be a way to do so.

Ubuntu :: Making Firefox 3.6 Fonts Look Like IE7 Or IE8

Jan 29, 2010

I'm coming from windows and now I've switched to ubuntu. I find firefox 3.5 (and now 3.6) very hard to read. I'd like to have the same font rendering on my ubuntu than on my windows xp, using internet explorer with cleartype enabled. I've searched A LOT on Internet, tested like 20 different .fonts.conf. However I still can't get what I want. Take a look at my screenshots :[URL]

On the left : ubuntu (Firefox 3.6) - on the right : XP (Internet Explorer I'd like to have the same fonts than on the right.

Picture "enabled.png" is the closest display I can get. But it's still not perfect.
I took the .fonts.conf from this site : [URL]

I've also tried the fonts from the site [URL]Look here : [URL](this one is different : IE8 is on the left)

My fonts config in firefox is the same than on windows (Times new roman, arial, courrier new). And of course I've installed the ttf mscorefonts package.

I don't say that IE is the best thing in the world It's only because I've used it a lot and now it's hard to browse sites with different fonts.
