    Firefox, Fonts and some problems with webpages using 11.04 beta and 10.10 stable

    I hope you can help me to solve this problem I am having when checking webpages, I dont know if its a problem of Firefox, Ubuntu Fonts or something else.

    The fonts seem to be bigger than other elements in the webpage. Needless to say that in Firefox Windows 7 it looks ok.

    Problem in Ubuntu 10.10 stable and 11.04 beta.

    Attached are images of the problem.

    Go to Firefox settings, select the "Content" tab, click "Advanced" next to the "Font" section and untick the option to "Allow pages to choose their own font...".

    If that doesn't help, try NoSquint extension.

    Re: Firefox 4 Mega Thread

    The 4.2 development release just jumped to Nightly 6.0 Alpha 1 . I still have Adblock Plus but the Compatibility Reporter is down . Looks like I will be waiting for add-ons to catch up again.

    Re: Firefox 4 Mega Thread

    If you are running nightlies you really need to have the compatibility reporter extension installed so you can at least try to run "incompatible" extensions. Have to fudge the install.rdf for it. Can't imagine much is going to list 6.0 yet!

    The nightly was supposed to jump to 5.0 (4.2 was just a dummy name). Did they make a boo-boo or did 5.0 branch already? Windows builds still say 4.2. Have to see how that goes in the next day or two.

    Re: Firefox 4 Mega Thread

    I checked and 5.0 has indeed branched already, without them even managing to get the nightlies to show it. So nightlies are going to be 6.0 for a while.

    I haven't found an online location for all the new channels, but you should be able to switch in the about dialog (soon!). The channels are Central which is equivalent to nightlies, Aurora which is like the alpha branch, then Beta and Release which are obvious. They will overlap considerably on the 3-monthly release schedule.

    The Compatibility reporter no longer works , and I will check the version again when I get home .

    Re: Firefox 4 Mega Thread

    Thanks lovinglinux! I wanted to get FF 4 but, it didn't look like it supported NoScript, which I love even though it is annoying.
    I installed the side by side option and removed all add-ons in FF 4 and exported my Noscript settings from FF 3.6 and then
    imported them into FF4! Which is really sweet as it is a pain setting up NoScript initially!

    Plus I don't like change (one of those things about getting old...), but this is cool!
    Now, I have both FF 3.6 and FF 4 so I can play with both and then get rid of FF 3.6 when I am ready.
    Way cool!

    Re: Firefox 4 Mega Thread

    The one thing I can see Firefox 4 is missing is when you had multiple tabs open it would ask you if you wanted to save them for the next time you opened it.
    I sometimes would open an additional tab just so it would save where it was.
    Hopefully they will add that nice feature.

    Oh and it does appear to be much faster.

    EDIT: However I do like how Ctrl+Page Down still switches between tabs.

    Compatibility Reporter should be updated soon. Meanwhile, you can add compatibility manually.

    See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Updating_e...tibility_check

    I have already updated FoxTester to work with 6.0a1 and also added support for the new development scheme, whith links to releases, beta, aurora and central repositories.

    I use Session Manager extension. Is really cool and works like Opera session manager. You can save multiple sessions with different tabs and tab groups. So I have different sets of tabs for different activities (programming, media browsing, forum discussion and so on). All I need is to switch to a different session to get all the tabs I need for a particular activity. This way, I don't need to keep many tabs open. Helps to organize my workflow and improve performance.
