View Full Version : [ubuntu] Firefox - large space on page views after update

September 4th, 2008, 10:54 PM
After some updates on my computer, a problem with the fonts inside Firefox appeared.
All the spaces (typed by spacebar) are with the size of 3 or 4 common spaces. The texts on other internet pages shows the same.
I have reinstalled firefox twice, and the problem persists.

I really don't know what to do...

Ubuntu 8.04 x86

same thing here, and even if I log in into a different user. Same thing
I am running Ibex 8.10 and the issue start happen after I install crossweaver. And no, uninstall that does not help.

Other fonts in the system works fine.

I have the same problem - mine appeared when I upgraded from gutsy to hardy. Problem only affects firefox 3. Firefox 2 and Opera fonts are perfectly fine.

Did either of you manage to solve the problem? I have tried uninstalling & reinstalling firefox 3 but problem remains. :(

Im having this issue too it started when i installed the ati drivers for my 4850. running 8.10. any help would be appreciated

edit: it does the same thing if install epiphany-browser so it leads me to think that its somthing to do with the gecko engine.
