Firefox v17.x Text Corruption?

Postby Major_A » Sat Dec 01, 2012 9:25 pm

After updating to FF v17 then to v17.1 yesterday I've noticed text corruption. Anyone else notice this or am I an isolated incident? I haven't noticed if this occurs on any other computer (i.e. different video card with different drivers).

Looked on my other computer GTX 570 and the issues aren't there. Might have something to do with the older Radeon drivers? I also went into about:config and turned on Font Smoothing with no success. I know that the video card isn't overheating so I assume it's driver related.

can't match those errors on any of my 6-7 PC's here using FF17.

Try updating the drivers and see what happens!

Wish I could. According to AMD I am legacy and the latest drivers are 6 months old.

I'm about to give this a shot and will report back.

*EDIT*
Nope, didn't work. If the update broke this, then hopefully an update will fix it.
