    Angry Horrible graphics in firefox

    I have put up with this but I wondered if anyone can point me to some way to make this nicer....
    Looking at the previews, it does not show the differences I see here when viewing the pages directly in FF, in fact here it ALL looks horrid. When I am viewing the pages in FF the text looks OK, but the "text as an image" looks foul!
    For instance in #2 below, the tabs, "home, casino, poker, sports etc etc" look really ragged and horrible, the ones below them,
    "UserCP, FAQ, members list, calendar etc etc" seem to render fine...
    Equally, Google's Banner/logo is horrible, the text below it is fine.
    Here on openSuse forum, the edit/quote/post reply buttons as well as the little "light" next to my avatar showing if I am online are really bad, the text itself is OK
    In the edit window, the little icon buttons for for font, insert link image etc are horrible, text is OK
    It may be something to do with scaling of these "textpics". Anything I can do??

    I will try and find a way to post that shows the difference, and what I mean, but your thoughts are very welcome, please!






    Looking closer at say, google, the text is not perfect, but acceptable. The google logo/banner is really nasty though!

    Firefox 3.5.6 for openSuse, BTW but it has always been like this IIRC, graphics in my sig.

    Go to a page again
    Now looking at the section you refer: "home, casino, poker, sports etc etc"

    Now press and hold Ctrl and roll the mouse wheel 1 or 2 click towards you

    I use "<ctrl> +" and "<ctrl> - " when I want to zoom a page in FF. The problems remain, (but bigger/smaller natch!)

    Looks fine here, but this could point to a graphics card issue.

    I zapped this up to massive on screen and cropped a bit out



    The risk is if you zoom the view too much you will get this. The images in web pages are kept small and are generally not pretty when viewed too big

    are you using the Firefox add-on "NoSquint"?
    if no, then go Firefox Menu > View > Zoom > and if the "Zoom Text
    only" does not have a check mark, then click on it (to enable/place a
    check mark) then try caf's prescription again..

    if you are using NoSquint (or any similar addon), try disabling it
    then follow the above, and then try caf's prescription again...or:

    go to Firefox Menu > View > Zoom > Zoom Settings (NoSquint) > Zooming

    and spin the "Primary zoom method" from "Full Page Zoom (images and
    text)" to "Text Zoom (text only)" and then try caf's suggestion

    note: graphics don't zoom as well as do fonts..

    TyVVM Both of you!.. Much better! But..... (ain't there always a but with me )
    It's a bit two steps forward one step back, but is much better! (Zoom > Text only, not using "squint" although I am fast developing one!)
    But now it is so difficult to use as webpages waste most of my screen and the banner graphics are smaller than I would ideally prefer. I would like everything bigger, but as nice and clear as it is now... I am ATM typing in to a minuscule box surrounded by vast acres of grey!


    Should I look into DPI settings? Can I do that in FF only, and not change my entire graphical set-up?

    Here is the WASS page.....

    No zoom (<ctrl> 0 )


    With text zoom:

    to me those look like a web design problem at the site you are
    at...that is, to me it looks like *they* have decided the width of the
    screen they want you to see..

    yes, that is the problem....i just went to http://www.wassonline.com/
    and in full screen i get three columns in the middle of the screen and
    a bunch of *wasted* space on the sides..

    imho that is really poor "web design"..good luck on getting them to
    change it...they probably paid lots of money for that particular
    "look" after doing tons of research on exactly how to best 'excite'
    the deficient gambler gene in some and get them to empty their pockets
    and bank account before they leave..

    there is science to how they hook in the weak and the losers..
