Blurry, unreadable fonts
I'm running KDE 4.8.4 on Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS. I have an occasional menu font problem, which I used to only see in firefox, although for all I know it may affect other applications (which I don't use) as well. The attached picture shows what I mean - the fonts are all but unreadable. At the same time, the fonts in Google Chrome are fine. However, today, and after a recent reboot, the problem is in Chrome and emacs, whereas firefox is fine!
I can usually fix this by logging out of KDE and back in again (which means having to restart all my current applications), but I'm wondering if there's an easier solution? Also, what causes this font blurriness?
Note that restarting firefox doesn't fix the problem, so it seems to be something to do with the underlying font engine.
