    [SOLVED] Problems in firefox with fonts/look etc.

    Hi everyone,

    I am having problem with the how some web pages look in firefox. There are two attachments together with this post which shows how it looks. The first is from Google and the other is from mythweb.

    Is there someone that knows how to fix this?

    Ohhh and another thing is that my fonts when I log into the computer is too big for the space where i write my name, could these things be connected?

    Thx in advance!

    Try pressing Ctrl and - at once in Firefox several times, see if that helps.

    As for the login screen, you can find it under System - Administration - Login Window, and the 'Local' tab. I don't see a setting for fonts there though.

    No this doesn't help. Everything gets smaller but the web page still looks strange....

    Try going to Edit - Preferences - Content, click on 'Advanced' for Fonts, and toggle the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts" option. Does that help?

    Thank you for your help

    Sorry to say that didn't do the trick either....

    Some fonts became smaller but the problem seems more severe since on some webpages text don't fit or boxes is displayed on top of text etc.

    There seems to be some fundamental error but I don't have a clue what it could be...
