  • How Do I Fix the Garbled Text Issue in Firefox?!

    I am freaking tired of this bullcrap. I keep getting garbled text on many websites in Firefox and only in Firefox.

    Here's what it looks like:



    I've tried all of the following (and then some) and the issue still persists:
    • Cleared my windows font cache (C:\Windows\system32\FNTcache.dat - recalling filename offhand)
    • Cleared all Firefox cache, cookies, saved data, form history, etc.
    • Restarted computer.
    • Deleted all of my Helvetica fonts (this apparently worked for some users according to Mozilla Bugzilla)
    • Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox 3.5.6
    • Updated my graphics drivers
    • Reinstalled Flash plugin
    • Tried a different browser (this garbled text is only present in FF)
    • Cleared my profile and started anew
    • Reset my preferences and settings in options
    • It's not my fonts (2,055 of them) - all of them are fine. No duplicates, no corrupts, etc.
    • Not an encoding issue.
    • Not a add-ons issue (problem persists in FF safe mode with all add-ons disabled)


    The funny thing is if I zoom out, the text resolves to words and numbers, but once I reset zoom back to normal, it all becomes garbled again.

    I'm at wits end and nothing in my many Google searches has turned up anything helpful. I'm ready to pull my hair our or smash something to tinny bits. Help!

    Edit: Checked more things...

      I don't get the same on Linux. Looks like a style sheet issue to me.
