Fonts do not display clearly in some menus

ClearType is not enabled

This is particularly noticeable when viewing in FireFox and affects all sites rather than alone.  

To improve the visibility of fonts in your browser, enable ClearType.  Clear Type is Microsoft's technology to enhance the display of fonts.  It is part of Windows and is turned on by default for modern versions of Windows.  


If ClearType is disabled, it can affect FireFox and other applications.  FireFox relies on Windows for font smoothing, but if your prefer to it can be overridden.  

To set this specifically for FireFox:

  1. head to about:config
  2. change the value of gfx.direct2d.disabled to true
