Ubuntu :: Blurry Fonts In Opera And Firefox?

Mar 13, 2010

[URL]

why fonts in Chrome and Opera/Firefox are so different, even though they're set the same (Arial and Times New Roman)?

For me, pages in Opera/Firefox are blurry and I'd prefer to make them look like those in Google Chrome.

How to do that? Especially in Opera?

Ubuntu :: All Mozilla Fonts Are Blurry On 10.04?

Nov 26, 2010

I have a new laptop where I had to install Ubuntu 10.04 (8.04 wouldn't boot). All Mozilla software that I use every day (Firefox, Thunderbird, Sunbird) has blurry fonts in 10.04, as opposed to 8.04 where all the fonts are clear. I remember that on 8.04, Thunderbird 2 has the same blurry fonts if I use the package from Mozilla's website, but the fonts are clean if I use the Thunderbird 2 from the repository. The fonts in the content rendering (mail, web pages) are also blurred in a similar fashion in 10.04. I attach here the menus from Firefox 4.0 beta 1 on 8.04 and 10.04. It can be seen on large zoom that the fonts are not only blurry, but slightly smaller in width.

Ubuntu :: Fonts Gone All Funny In Opera Web Browser

Aug 10, 2011

Today I added more fonts to ~/.fonts directory. I launched Opera and the fonts are gone funny [image attached]. I don't have this problem in Firefox of Google Chrome/Chromium. I changed fonts in Opera >> Preferences but to no avail. Also I deleted .opera directory. No joy. The only solution I've found is to delete .fonts directory (but I want those fonts for other applications).

Ubuntu :: Add The Repository For A Current Version Of Firefox 3.0 Or Opera?

Mar 17, 2010

Just a reminder, Firefox 3.0 will reach End of Life status with the upcoming release of Firefox 3.0.19. This may concern you if you are still on Jaunty (like me). You may want to search the forum on how to add the repository for a current version of Firefox or Opera. Anybody who knows what Canonical will do in such a situation if a critical bug shows up after Firefox 3.0 will no longer be supported, but Jaunty still is supported?

Ubuntu :: Live Space Font Squeezed In Firefox/Opera

Jul 4, 2010

I'm on Lucid.I don't know if this is a problem from the Windows Live space itself.But since a while ago, all the English text on Windows Live space are squeezed horizontally into little stems and thus illegible. It happens only to Firefox and Opera on Ubuntu (lucid in my case).I compared it with Firefox and Opera on Windows. They both work fine.

Ubuntu :: All Applications Crashing - Firefox, Thunderbird, Opera, OpenOffice?

Jul 13, 2010

For a couple of weeks, I have had constant crashes of all my applications on Lucid:Thunderbird 3.1 (updated since crashing started using Ubuntuzilla)Firefox 3.6.6 (updated since crashing started using Ubuntuzilla) - also crashes in safe mode OpenOffice 3.2 Opera 9.63 Most frequently it is Firefox and Thunderbird crashing, because they're the applications I use most. (Also F-Spot has crashed, but F-Spot frequently crashed before all this, so may not be related).

Sometimes applications will run for a few hours and then crash (either suddenly close or freeze, it varies). Other times the application crashes before it even opens, and I just get the Mozilla crash reporter. If an application won't start at all, it will usually start if I restart the computer, but may crash again soon afterwards. There is no obvious pattern to when it crashes - sometimes on starting, sometimes when I click something, sometimes when I'm not even at the computer and I just come back to find it crashed.

My husband (a programmer) has run Memtest on my machine, which found no problems. He is also running lucid on the same hardware apart from the monitors, and has the same versions of OpenOffice, Thunderbird and Firefox except for extensions, but has not any problems. A warning that shows on the terminal if Firefox crashes in safe mode, is:

WARNING: pipe error: Broken pipe: file /builds/slave/linux_build/build/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/ipc_channel_posix.cc, line 627
WARNING: pipe error (3): Connection reset by peer: file /builds/slave/linux_build/build/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/ipc_channel_posix.cc, line 404

This is strange because I did not, when that warning first appeared, have Chromium installed (although I did have Picasa). My husband installed Chromium on my machine after seeing the warning and Chromium is running okay so far but other applications are still crashing.

Software :: Firefox / Opera Webpage Not Loading

Jan 3, 2009

I have posted the following below on the Ubuntu Forums but have not got a satisfactory answer yet. My problem is as follows:I have installed Xubuntu on my machine to test a setup I want to to for my in-laws. Everything went well until I realised I have a problem loading some pages on Firefox.
There is no error message but they are just stuck on loading and finally timing out. I have then downloaded Opera and I am showing the same problem. A bit of research showed it could be a IPV6 issue. I therefore disabled ipv6 in about:config and also /etc/modprobe.d/aliases - 'alias net-pf-10 ipv6' to alias 'net-pf-10 off ipv6'. No change - still can't get those pages loaded.

Slackware :: IPV6 Support Slows Opera And Firefox

Dec 29, 2010

Support for ipv6 keeps being put into the kernel and now into browsers.I blacklisted ipv6 in Slackware and that solved the slow internet response until I updated to the latest Opera and Firefox browsers. Both were horribly slow again. Firefox could be reconfigured to kill ipv6 by running about:config as a url and disabling ipv6.

The new Opera 11 is different. I can't find any config to disable ipv6. Does anyone have an idea?I reverted to Opera 10.11 in order to have zippy internet access again, and not "dialup modem" speeds.

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.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Fonts Invisible After Upgrade?

Sep 11, 2010

I just upgraded a laptop from an older version of Ubuntu to 10.04.1 LTS, which included an upgrade of firefox to ver. 3.6.9. Many pages in firefox now display only some of the text, although if I hilight where the text should be I get hilighted areas and if I copy and paste them into an editor the text shows up. Other pages display normally.

An example of this is [URL] where the "Welcome to the Ubuntu Forums ..." (un-logged in) paragraph is invisible although the off-white box which should contain this text is there. A few things I've tried and discovered:

* SeaMonkey doesn't have this problem (I'm using it to write this).

* If I un-check "Allow pages to choose their own fonts", the invisible text shows up with locally spec'd fonts. Specifying local font colors makes no difference.

* Switching users makes no difference.

* I've tried re-installing a large number of ttf fonts plus fontconfig, which makes no difference.

* This problem wasn't there before the upgrade.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Fonts Huge - How To Shrink

May 12, 2010

I was running SUSE 10.0 for a long time. At one point, I tried ubuntu 8.10, but went back to SUSE 10.0 because I couldn't take the huge fonts. I'm committed to running Linux (I'm a software developer with 25 years experience on UNIX and Linux platforms). I've been able to shrink the icon size on the desk via the file browser, change the other fonts, etc. - but running Google, and even this linuxquestions.org interface is an experience that's as if I had 20/400 vision (I have 20/20-30).

How do I shrink this? Zooming in and out from the "view" pulldown sort of works, but it's temporary - plus, doing that causes the resolution on the smaller print to get pretty blurry. Even the fonts and icons on the toolbar are HUGE! SUSE didn't exhibit this behavior - but I'd rather be running ubuntu, since that's what most of my potential employers are running. It would seem a certainty this has come up before, but I haven't found an answer yet. I'll use ANY font/configuration combination that will give me smaller print, that isn't blurry.

Ubuntu :: Monospace Fonts Not Rendered In Firefox And Epiphany?

Feb 7, 2011

I have some strange problem with rendering monospace fonts in FF and Epiphany. There is some attached example - most pages with some code blocks look like it, it is not possible to see the text, even after selecting it. I tried to change settings in FF of fonts, tried to change size, colors, font, but still it is not visible at all no matter what. However pages like that are displayed fine in "Chromium". Does anyone have an idea where do I begin solving this?

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.
