Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 164623
Firefox font rendering looks uneven
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:10 EST
Description of problem:
The font rendering in Rawhides Firefox looks very uneven and "ugly" when
compared to the current nightly build from mozilla.org. (see attached screenshot)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 117272 [details]
rendering comparison: left=Rawhide, right=current mozilla.org nightly
What versions of pango and cairo do you have installed?
but the rendering looked the same with the versions before the last Rawhide
update of these packages.
For the record: Disabling Pango in /usr/bin/firefox by uncommenting the
following lines (as mentioned in
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=164664 ) makes the
font-rendering look fine again.
## Set MOZ_ENABLE_PANGO is no longer used because Pango is enabled by default
## you may use MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=1 to force disabling of pango
Now that bug 164664 is fixed i was able to use firefox with pango enabled for a
while and noticed that the problem on appears with serif fonts while sans-serif
fonts are displayed correctly.
Very old Bug. Closing this for now as we already got new updated firefox in
rawhide now. Kindly submit bugs against new rawhide version.
