In chimera, the text frequesntly appears as a series of random vertical lines on seemingly random words...they appear normal if I highlight them with the mouse but yeah..its annoying...help?

It might show up looking normal in the pic, but Im just guessing, so try anyways. I would delete, and then reinstall the latest nightly build of chimera. That doesnt happen on mine, or anyone else's to my knowledge.

i often have a problem with portions of text disapearing in chimera (sometimes flickering on and off depending on what i'm doing). i think that there are still several bugs to be worked out in getting the gecko rendering fully quartz compliant. keep in mind, it's only on .5

if you need really detailed info, go straight to the source: http://chimera.eternaltedium.com/

99.9999999% of all text rendering issues I ever had with Chimera were fixed by Jaguar. If you aren't running Jaguar, thats already one big setback, but it seems that pretty much everyone on these boards already is.
