Spinning off from bug 614796 comment 16 so that bug can stay where it was historically: (In reply to comment #15) > David: that only happens on that specific page in Italian? Not sure why it > doesn't happen everywhere. Tested in Fedora and it does happen everywhere. > We need to find a way to force Linux to not do horribly wrong things with text, > though that demonstrates how close Italian is cutting it with fitting text into > that spot. I think specifically we can never let Linux fall through to the fallback "sans-serif" font. I don't know what it's using but it's so wide it's almost monospace.
I'm also testing it in Windows 7 and it happens as well Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; it; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20101130 Firefox/3.6.13
(In reply to comment #1) > I'm also testing it in Windows 7 and it happens as well Works fantastic on Windows 7 for me (though it's cutting it close). Can you get a screen shot?
Oh that button is a separate issue. Filed bug 615895.
Per conversation in IRC, we're going to use MetaBlack as the fallback for Trebuchet MS for the top items, and keep the drop-downs in the font they are now. That is, the menu items will have font-family: "Trebuchet MS", MetaBlack, sans-serif; If you're somehow running IE on Linux, well... things will still be broken but it's the least of your problems.
fwiw, this doesn't look very good in elinks.
