    This is really annoying, not sure what is wrong, recently reinstalled the OS and this issue came up. My resolution is at the recommended mark.

    As soon as the text is hovered over or clicked on, it becomes normal.

    Any ideas?

    Using resolutions from video card or OS? Mine looks better if I use card software.

    Can't say I've had that one but 95% of my fixes started because of an update and ended w/ bad power supply.

    My last video card update took out one of my monitors capacitors and now I think power is on the fritz... Ever feel like a one legged duck

    Good Luck

    Check real native resolution of your monitor.

    Maybe you get wrong resolution recommended by your system.

    The native display is 1680x1050 and that's what I'm at. It's a 15.4 inch laptop screen.

    It happens less often now, but still shows up every now and then.

    Will need to check for updates, possibly install an older version of the graphics driver.

    Nice, I would have been wasting time updating the video drivers for the graphics card and monitor.

    I don't know what it is, but Firefox doesn't always display sites nicely for me. I swear it uses Comic Sans for every page :\
    Chrome FTW

    Apparently it's an AMD graphics issue but Firefox seems to be the only browser showcasing it. There is no official fix, other than to use a different browser.

    I'm using Win7, the issue has been seen on Ubuntu too.
