Is this site compatible with FF 59.1?

#1 Post by Grisu » Sat Mar 17, 2018 1:48 am

Hello,

after upgrading to the latest Firefox (64-Bit) I can't access the forums anymore. The texts / images aren't displayed properly.

Does anyone else have the same issues?

Works fine for me, also on FF 59.0.1

But I've seen others complain about "sites" not loading correctly and it seems there's a bug that needs to get fixed, but there is a workaround apparently.
''so far it appears to be an issue that only affects users who have turned off cleartype font rendering within their windows settings. so a workaround for the moment would either be to turn cleartype back on or disabling hardware acceleration in firefox: Firefox's performance setting''
No idea if this issue is what you are facing.

I've got to ask the obligatory "what does your setup look like"? Are you using any plugins? Can you launch in safe mode and let us know if it shows up that way?

Windows 10 (64-Bit) fully patched & MSI Geforce 1070 (8GB) with latest NVidia drivers. Latest (FF 64-Bit) all add-ons disabled.

It is really strange, sometimes the forum displays every item, text in order, sometimes don't. So far I have only seen this with your site.

I'm also checking my system for viruses... But it seems to be some sort of display driver issue.

I use FF Portable as my daily driver, and have just upgraded to 59.0.1 as well. So far so good.

It could be a video driver issue, but could also be due to FF's interaction with the driver.

Do you get the same problem with eg. Chrome?

I don't use Chrome. But under Edge it works fine as well.

Just wanted to make sure that the error is on my end and not forum related. Will just wait for the next FF update. :)

Wow, you've got a powerful PC. :shock:

I also have similar text rendering problems with Firefox 59.0.1. However, they also occur in many other websites, at least Reddit.

I have font smoothing disabled in Windows settings, and that apparently is a requirement for the problem or at least makes it much more likely to occur. (My setup is similar to yours, though: 64-bit Windows 10, and GeForce GTX 1060.)

The issue doesn't matter much to me because I use Vivaldi as my primary browser.

Another workaround that has been commonly suggested is disabling hardware acceleration in Firefox settings.

With a powerful PC comes great responsibilty. :mrgreen: Just kidding, I doubt that a 1070 is state of the art in 2018.

Thanks for letting me know of other options and that I'm not alone with this.. :wink:
