Text Displays At Low Resolution

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Sometimes text appears to be of a lower resolution within some posts. It doesn't always happen and is not super common, but annoying when it happens. Funnily enough highlighting the text seems to cause it to display at the correct resolution. Example: Initial.thumb.png.46cc5582ad0d74891cc178a70009ae35.pngHighlighted.thumb.png.3ca32993b4b6e4c6e2f431bb27165554.pngFinal.thumb.png.2fdb394436957668be3e717b8d7c4fd5.png


 

It might be easier to see the problem if you view the images in tabs and cycle between them. I've seen this problem ever since changing to FireFox in the past few months.

Tell me if you see the same problem within these sentences:

I'm low res.

 

What I can see on the first picture is that there is some kind of outline/shadow on the letters which on the third picture is not present.

Jokes aside, do you notice this on any other sites?  Does it happen right away or only after scrolling?  Do you have any unusual extensions enabled?

Do you have the browser zoomed to anything aside from 100%? 

In some cases this will make font appear differently, as the browser itself is applying the scaling.

Nah. I have just the vanilla FireFox install and was not zoomed in at all (never am outside of viewing images). If you look at the image I posted you'll see it only seems to display some text at a low resolution. I've only noticed the issue on these forums as well.

Try using another browser, see if it occurs there too. Sounds more like an output problem with your pc than the linus website.

I thought that at first but I've not seen another website do it and I've only seen this issue on FireFox. Chrome works fine. I was mainly raising the issue because it seems like it could be a LTT problem but I'm not sure.

Only way of knowing that is multiple people to address the same issue using Firefox. I've never experienced issue like this one, maybe because I use Google Chrome

I assume you mean within the Windows display settings. Yeah it's at 100% which is the recommended.

It looks like it's trying to render text scrolled to between pixels or something, which is super weird.  I feel like if this was a forum-wide issue this problem would be common, so that tells me something strange is going on at your end, but if that was the case I'd expect you to notice it on other sites... I guess we'll have to wait for Mortis :P

This looks like it's almost certainly a browser/OS rendering issue, because the font is provided and rendered by your browser, with nothing unusual being done by us.


I don't work for Floatplane Media, so any Floatplane comments that I make are my own and may be incorrect or in conflict with the official view.
