User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:5.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/5.0.1 Build ID: 20110707182747 Steps to reproduce: Go to http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/5.0.1/whatsnew/ . Reset zoom, and then zoom once or twice. Look at the "Get answers" link. Actual results: Light-grey segments appear on top of the black underline, breaking it up. Expected results: The text and its underline should increase in size without introducing any artifacts.
Possibly a duplicate of bug 505243, but it's hard to tell because I can't reproduce the glitch on that bug's test page. In either case, this does seem to be caused by text-shadow. The glitched parts of the underline align with the letters, and disabling text-shadow in Firebug caused the glitch to disappear.
Reproduced (but I at least sometimes have to zoom more than just one two steps): Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20110614 Firefox/3.6.18 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:5.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/5.0 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:6.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:7.0a2) Gecko/20110717 Firefox/7.0a2 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:8.0a1) Gecko/20110717 Firefox/8.0a1

Yes, it looks as though the white text "shadow" is overlapping the black underline.
