Description

7 years ago
STR:
Load https://webfwd.wufoo.com/forms/webfwd-scouts/
Type something on First name text box
Press <Tab>

Result:
On the 1st flash of the caret on Last name text box only a fourth or third of the caret is visible.

From a 3rd party confirmation: "I saw the effect for one flash of the caret and then the whole caret appeared. I had to reload the page to repeat. Only appeared if Tab was used. If page reloaded the effect was repeatable."

Initially reported and confirmed on http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=2355947

Bug 661471 - Create preference(s) to allow specific font families to be forced to use GDI Classic rendering 


It works if I set gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.force_gdi_classic_max_size to 0.
