[Ubuntu] Space inconsistency between characters inside Simplify Page
[Affected versions]: - 60.0a1 (2018-02-08) [Affected platforms]: - Ubuntu 16.04 x32 - Ubuntu 16.04 x64 - Ubuntu 14.04 x64 [Steps to reproduce]: 1. Open Firefox. 2. Go to https://goo.gl/Z8sCcF 3. Open the Print preview page from menu bar 4. Click on the Simplify page button 5. Observe the characters (especially around “g” and “t” characters) [Expected result]: - Characters are displayed uniform, there is no space inconsistency between them. [Actual result]: - There are noticeable space gaps and overlapped characters inside random words, more visible around “g” and “t” characters. [Regression range]: - This seems to be regression as I cannot reproduce it on FF 57.0 (12.11.2017). I will follow-up with a regression range asap. [Additional notes]: - Note that this issue is more noticeable on x32 platforms, and also its severity depends on the chosen article, in some cases it is barely perceivable. - We encounter the same behaviour regardless if the page is displayed in Portrait or Landscape mode. - In Reader view mode, the characters are properly displayed. - Windows 10 x64 is not affected by this problem. - Other websites affected: wikipedia.org, bbc.com.
FYI, In Beta59, the Simplify page button is disabled by pref "print.use_simplify_page". If forcibly enabled the preference, then I can also reproduce the text rendering issue on Beta59.0b8.

(In reply to Gian-Carlo Pascutto [:gcp] from comment #3) > Duplicate of bug 1435234? If so, then I believe this should be fixed now. Hey Alice0775 White, can you confirm that this issue is fixed?
Priority: -- → P3
Yes, Recent 60.0b12 and Nightly61.0a1 are much better than the before(the bad build of comment#1). It seems to have been fixed.

I can confirm on my side too, that on the latest Beta (60.0b13) and latest Nighly (60.0a1 - 2018-04-17), the issue looks way better now, the still existing inconsistencies are barely noticeable.

Go to https://goo.gl/Z8sCcF For the record -- it looks like the actual page involved here (not goo.gl which is simply a redirector) is: https://banyanhill.com/exclusives/bitcoin-millionaires-shocked-by-new-stock/ --> setting that in URL field
