Ow, my eyes


Is anyone else getting horrible blurry text on the front page of Amazon.co.uk? I suspect it’s a combination of OS X, Firefox and some weird font issue. Doesn’t seem to affect any of Amazon’s other pages, either.

    Nope. (IE6 on windies)

  2. Me neither. (Firefox on XP.)

    Does happen for me with IE6 on W2K and I didn’t notiuce it last nigth with FF on WXP. If I can be bothered I’ll heat up the mini mac tonight and see if I can see it there. Have you tried safari and camino? (if it happens in Camino too it must be a Gecko thingy).

    ach! DOESN’T Happen. I wish I could spell. The version of FF with spell checking on text boxes can’t come soon enough…

    Must be a firefox thing. It’s fine in Safari.

    Hmmm. I’ll try camino tonight then – same rendering engine. if that still doens’t work I’ll kick my debug build of FF into shape and if that still isn’t working I guess I’ll think about logging a firefox bug about it. I wonder if amazon are serving different content to different browsers. Remember when they used to? The glory days of the more expensive prices when you used netscape…

  7. I see it (Firefox on OS X 10.4.7)
