    I there as you can see from my earlier post im having this wierd problem of this wierd blackoutline running across various images / buttons / text boxes which is getting annoying any way to stop it?

    And I asked this in another thread but any way to make the text on webpages look clearer? I did optimize the fonts for LCD screen but still it's blurry and not right.

    Example of the black outline

    Can anyone help me how to get rid of it?


    P.S I'm sorry if the images dont appear linked.

    All up in your bidness
    About the smooth text - adjust it to "Standard (for CRT)" in System Preferences even if you have an LCD. This sets the font smoothing to the minimum level. If that's still too blurry for you you can use TinkerTool to turn off font smoothing completely - your fonts will then be ugly as hell, but they will be sharp!

    You've inadvertantly pressed Apple + F5 to switch on the 'black outlining'. Do the same again and you'll toggle it off. Its something to do with Voiceover - see your System Prefs > Universal Access for more info
