    Is anyone getting text alignment issue in Firefox? Especially with the new update to

    Does it have something to do with the font book? - look at the first paragraph, especially the text near links. look at the far right of the page, the text just extrudes out of the screen ...

    The same deal with typing in a text box, the cursor lags behind what I typed, so I cannot see what i've written.
    In Safari its fine.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    I see what you're saying but it's not happening for me. Try making the window a smaller width to see if it continues.

    I have had trouble like that when the page encoding and the text encoding don't match but that seems to happen with any browser.

    :( no that didn't work..
    a small workaround i found was to shrink the text (cmd + -)
    I hope Mozilla realises this problem and find a fix..

    It does something similar for me every now and then, too, especially if I've been using Minefield for a while and gone back to FF2. It seems this sometimes causes the Default font preferences to go haywire, or simply disappear (trying to use some Abadi font no matter what...)

    I can fix it by (re)setting the default font(s) in FF preferences -> Content (-> Default Font: Advanced).

    I had similar problems in Thunderbird at one time. I'm not sure how it got resolved.
