    I get random bold text when I view sites using Firefox 2 on my macbook pro.
    I'm currently on FF but this has been happening in all the 2.x line. I haven't tried this with FF 1.x so I don't know if this was always an issue.
    Has anyone noticed this before?

    I'm putting a screen shot to show what it looks like.
    Notice how the right side seems bold and a bit blurrier?
    This happens quite alot.
    They go away when you resize the screen or drag your mouse over it (highlighting words that are effected). I can't seem to figure out what is causing this.

    Yeah I WAS running Firefox 2 on my iMac and MacBook and had the weird bold texts appear in various web sites. In particular was Google search results, I went through all of Firefox's preferences to check to see if I had missed a setting or altered something, no luck.

    Solution: Use Safari 3.0 Beta. Memory juicy but if your running 1GB of RAM+ than your sweet.

    Same thing happens for me on my Mac Pro. I'm assuming it's a Firefox issue. Mildly annoying, but I'm hoping that it gets fixed in Firefox 3 later this year.

    Its bloody annonying, try viewing this on a small screen resolution. It blows. I'm sorry Firefox but dare I say I would rather use IE than Firefox as this bold text thing was really ticking me off. Oh well, thank god for Safari. :D

    Something tells me that Firefox 2.1 is just around the corner......
