Some fonts look extra bold and fuzzy under FireFox, Ok under other browsers

Hello all,

Some fonts look extra bold and fuzzy under FireFox, they do not look perfect as they should.
And they look perfect other browsers.
You can see an example for example here:

https://www.anoox.com/contact_us.php?reason=partnering

where you can see the labels of Form fields that are in this font called dosis look bold and fuzzy under FireFox ! and they look perfect under Chrome, IE, Opera, etc.

Do you have any solution to this font display problem of FireFox?

Thanks.

Hi, try this:

body {
    webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
    -moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;
    font-smoothing: antialiased;
}

Remove the font-weight:bold from the .contact_label styles as the font you are using is already a bold font and Firefox seems to be adding a pseudo bold to the already bold font.

.contact_label{font-weight:normal}

(As an aside do you really need custom fonts on a site like that as it only adds to the overheads and the site is not design orientated.)

I’m amazed that the page “look perfect in other browsers” considering the abundance of html errors and warnings shown when using the free w3.org validation tools.

Paul,

Thanks. That was the answer.
And that suggestion actually helped in other such cases too.
Good job Sir :slight_smile:

Look this answer that your Site:
" has abundance of html errors and warnings shown when using the free w3.org validation tools."
is really a useless answer, as has been detailed before.
Lets put it this way, if you run any Site of any significance through w3.org validation tool you will get tons of errors. For example run www.microsoft.com through W3 validator and you will get 120 Errors for it, 3 times what our Site gets in Errors by W3. What does that tell you? Nothing really.
Hek run www.mozilla.org through w3.org validation tool and you will get tons of errors for it.
Does that mean that maker of FireFox Web browser does not know about good HTML?
NO. So stop giving:
your Site " has abundance of html errors and warnings shown when using the free w3.org validation tools."
as answer. It is total waste of time of the OP, set aside yours.
And this is my last comment on this iussue.
