A fix for an odd Thunderbird/Firefox font problem
Authored by: wickwood on Nov 25, '07 05:43:08PM

I too am experiencing this problem, but not on all pages.

It manifests itself on Google Search Results with every Bolded word that was part of the search phrase.

It also manifests itself in some form input textboxes. When this occurs, the cursor does not keep up with the words that I'm typing. And deleting moves the cursor backwards, but doesn't fully erase the characters.

I have determined that my problem is has nothing to do with duplicate fonts. I downloaded LinoType FontExplorer X ( ) to be sure that I had no font issues, (and there were some that I corrected), but none of them corrected the problems.

By using Web Developer FireFox Extension, I have been able to determine that the problem appears to be a CSS Issue.
