    Default Mozilla Firefox Font problem

    Hi guys and gals.

    So basically, the problem is that the firefox fonts are in some instances crooked, specifically in the add-on section and visiting some websites. I have the Muzlocker font repo installed, and for the best rendering quality for me, i set the fonts hinting to 'slight' and RGB.
    And the result is this:

    SUSE Paste

    On the left, you can see crisp and smooth fonts, and the problem is with the fonts on the right side.


    If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated.

    Using openSUSE 13.1 64bit w GNOME 3.10

    Honestly I don't see any real difference.

    I had that problem with the fonts from Muzz's repo
    So I switched back to the openSUSE packages from the main repos.

    Then I added fontconfig-infinality
    Tumbleweed_KDE

    Hi and first of all thanks for responding. I installed the infinality fontconfig, now i have one question. Does it enable that fontconfig by default, or do i have to do something to enable it?

    Thanks.

    Nope, run, as root
    Code:
    infinality-ctl makestyles
    infiinality setstyle YOUR_CHOICE_HERE
    Options for YOUR_CHOICE_here are
    debug
    linux
    infinality
    osx
    osx2
    win7
    win98
    winxp

    Play around with the values, reboot to effect changes systemwide, use what suits you.

    The first command passes with no troubles.

    Code:
    infinality setstyle infinalityIf 'infinality' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf infinality
