Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.2.6) Gecko/20100625 Firefox/3.6.6 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0C)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.2.6) Gecko/20100625 Firefox/3.6.6 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0C)

After updating to version 3.6.6, I noticed a week or 2 later that a certain part of websites that I use daily had a bluish, purple colored tint to them. Not only on sites using flash players but other websites as well.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type in url
2. Click on any flash player or try to listen to any music streamed
3. Titles of all songs is a dark blue when highlighted
Actual Results:  
I see a purple/blue color that overlaps fonts, texts on flash players and websites.

Expected Results:  
The font should have showed up normally. No tint no blurred effect.

I recently started experiencing this issue with the 3.6.6 update.

I did take a look at the following thread. None of the steps worked for me.

I provided 2 screenshots, So you could see exactly what I'm seeing.

The following bug occurs with the default theme, I have not used any other themes.

Flash renders the fonts itself, why do you think that this can be a browser problem ?
Does it work with other browsers using the same flash plugin (all browsers except IE)

Yes, It works with other browsers as well. Firefox is the only browser I'm seeing this issue with.
