[SOLVED] Odd jagged font glitch on BBC News site
« on: June 12, 2020, 01:31:48 pm »
This had me puzzled. On the BBC News page http://bbc.co.uk/news I found that in Firefox ESR the fonts were all showing as not anti-aliased. Other pages OK, using Waterfox and Seamonkey OK. Same on both Live ISO and installed.

I checked all my settings, using new clean profile, no matter what they were still jaggy - but just that one page!

Anyhoo, from the very dim past I remembered once upon a time it used to be necessary to run dpkg reconfigure fontconfig-config on occasions. So, I did that using default values and it worked, pages rendered correctly.

There are probably a number of reasons why, but anyway that solved the problem.
