Type in navbar blotchy in Firefox

Recommended Posts

The type in the navbars in Firefox renders completely differently than in other browsers, lacking definition and oddly blotchy with grey areas in the fixed navbar. Here is one sample of the blotchy type in Firefox:

In this case I'm using the MUD child theme, but the same issue exists in other sites in the fixed navbar.

 

In the MUD theme, the font rendering in the vertical navigation is also blotchy only in firefox.

 

Anyone know a fix?

Browsers render fonts differently, unfortunately there's not a whole lot you can do about that aside from using a different font and seeing if you like its appearance on all browsers.

I have this same problem.  I've played around with it in 3 browswers, FireFox, Chrome, and IE (all browsers are fully updated).  I've noticed that it looks it's worst in Firefox, it looks a little better in Chrome, and it looks sensational in IE.  Go figure, right?  I always made IE out as a bad browser, but for me, in this case I think IE does a better job.

      Hello, 
      I have an issue with NavPro on mobile when the link of the menue is on the same page. 
      Here is my website: http://foundersofthefuture.co
      The isssue comes from the fact that in my menue most of the items send somewhere else on the same page using anchor link (eg. #container_u788888). 
      This works well on desktop but on mobile, nothing happens when clicking on the link. One of the link of the menue of the homepage "France" sends to another page of the website and this one works well even on mobile. 
      I am using the Pagelines framework theme and also used a wordpress plugin (jQuery Smooth Scroll) for smooth scrolling . 
      Thanks in advance for your help and let me know if I need to provide more information. 
      Best,
      Pierre

      Hi guys. Just now trying out Platform 5. I like the reletive simplcity of the new interface but there are things I'm used to in DMS that I'm not seeing yet in 5. Is there a good manual, documentation, video series about some of the basics?
      In particular, I've got a simple navigation menu, created the standard way in WP menus section with several top level parents, then 3-4 children menu items below a couple parent items. Have them moved to the right to create the standard parent-child relationship but all I see on the page is the parent level items - no dropdown!. So I changed themes from Platform5 to the standard 2015 default theme and now I see absolutely no menu at top, except for the mobile (hamburger?) icon.
      In DMS, one had Navi and Navbar, etc sections and each would work differently and give different results. How do you work the menu system in 5? And how get different results ?
      thanks

      I have a problem at http://kambo.world. Using navbar for the main site navigation. It works fine in normal/desktop mode [first screenshot], using the WP Menu I have specified. But in hamburger mode it seems to do its own thing, picking a few pages at random [second screenshot] A fix for this greatly appreciated!
