    As a result of the latest platform update for Windows 7 (IE 10 prereq), some of you may be noticing corruption/distortion/rendering issues with text. I've noticed it when scrolling through Gmail, for example.

    The bug is documented here: Bugzilla - Firefox

    So this is a Firefox only issue?

    I'm not sure exactly why you created this thread.

    I created this thread because people are going to experience it and wonder about it. It's an additional way people can find out about it. I did a couple searches on Google before it returned the right thing.

    If you don't like the thread, flag it. If a mod agrees, they'll remove it. Sorry if it's an issue that I create a thread with the purpose of pointing people to a Bugzilla entry that shows people experiencing this problem the devs are aware of it.

    I meant no offense, I was just confused about if you wanted to just put the information out there or if you were asking for a solution.

    If you just wanted to put the information out there then I'm still confused if this is a Firefox only issue, if it is a firefox only issue I would have though it would have been smart to put that somewhere in the title and post.

    I think its a Firefox issue because IE seems to be perfectly fine on my wifes computer.

    I can't say whether it's limited to Firefox or not. I see MailMan mention IE is fine and a couple searches on Chrome turned up nothing. It probably is just limited to Firefox, but I didn't want to speak too soon.

    As far as putting it in the post, I figured linking to Bugzilla, which is specific to Firefox (as noted), would cause people to get the hint that it might just be limited to Firefox.

    I was a bit short-fused about your reply, but no offense meant on my part either. Thanks.
