Or perhaps similar to this:
This only takes place in Firefox; various other applications are untouched. It additionally took place on the LiveUSB I made use of for installation, making me believe an equipment or vehicle driver concern. The result of lshw on my computer system is below: http://pastebin.com/LnSt6veT.
Any kind of suggestion what could be creating this, or just how I can repair it?
... and also "Use Google Chrome" is not a legitimate answer.;)
You appear to have actually taken care of to address your trouble. Still, if you are describing a current bug in Firefox that makes it 'disobey' the system - vast typeface setups in Ubuntu, this might aid you out : http://www.uluga.ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=8193420&postcount=11.
Basically, the bug makes Firefox constantly provide internet site fonts (and also its chrome GUI fonts) anti - aliased (AA). The link over shows just how you can modify this and also make Firefox constantly provide all fonts crisp and also pixel - ish, with no AA (this is specifically helpful for webdesigners and also individuals like me that despise anti - aliased fonts as a result of their aesthetic artefacts).
The solution calls for that you have origin (a.k.a. admin) advantages (several tutorials on just how to 'go origin' are readily available online).
BTW, I'm a complete rookie at Linux and also Ubuntu is my hand Linux distro, which is why I come close to such aggravating 'pests' from an end - customer perspective (i.e. fast solutions). Regardless of this, Ubuntu 10.10 has actually been a primarily wonderful experience for me and also I totally advise it (along with assistance all GNU/Linux distros and also the open - resource and also free software program activities).
I wish this aids. Thanks.
