Re: [SOLVED]Firefox fonts look horrible on certain pages like Twitter

you say use --enable-system-cairo when compiling Firefox... can you please explain what you mean by compile and where you would use that command?

Re: [SOLVED]Firefox fonts look horrible on certain pages like Twitter

It's an option that can be added to the mozconfig file.

ac_add_options --enable-system-cairo

Notice that Arch has the line commented out.

If you modified a file, its checksum must have been changed. Run

makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD

to fix this.

Re: [SOLVED]Firefox fonts look horrible on certain pages like Twitter

I keep getting errors with the build()... So is arch trying to stop everyone from using the cairo option or something?

Re: [SOLVED]Firefox fonts look horrible on certain pages like Twitter

I don't think you read my post properly. I did link to the cairo patch that comes *first*.

Don't say "getting errors", show the error line.

No, that cairo patch is called cairo because it's for the cairo package, not firefox wink

Re: [SOLVED]Firefox fonts look horrible on certain pages like Twitter

Is that really the *first* error line?

With firefox 18, PGO didn't want to compile for me (don't have the details handy), so try removing the PROFILE_GEN_SCRIPT line from your mozconfig file.

well that is the start of what looks like error lines... I mean what else is there to look at anything before that line is a jumbled mess of... well... nothing conclusive.

anyways I get this error after deleting that line in mozconfig:

I have 0.27.1... so I will try once more with Firefox.. if it doesn't work out I will just wait until a new Firefox stable rolls out.

Re: [SOLVED]Firefox fonts look horrible on certain pages like Twitter

I discovered something interesting today while playing with my font settings in xfce4. I switched my sub-pixel order from RGB to BGR and I can reproduce the look of the blurry Firefox fonts on my desktop. So why would Firefox render the fonts as if they were BGR instead of respecting the system's font rendering settings?

Re: [SOLVED]Firefox fonts look horrible on certain pages like Twitter

I can't seem to makepkg firefox using that patch. Sure I was able to makepkg cairo with the patch just fine... but firefox is just a pain to compile. Do you happen to have a .pkg.tar.xz for x86_64 of the patched firefox I could download?

Yeah, the patch doesn't apply to firefox 18.0.1:

/usr/src/mozilla-release/layout/base/FrameLayerBuilder.cpp:2002:1: error: prototype for ‘void mozilla::{anonymous}::ContainerState::ProcessDisplayItems(const nsDisplayList&, mozilla::FrameLayerBuilder::Clip&, uint32_t)’ does not match any in class ‘mozilla::{anonymous}::ContainerState’

If you're feeling adventurous, try 19.0b4 wink

I found out the hard way about that...

What do you mean by "adventurous" what is this package exactly?

Or if you don't want to downgrade to 17, try the beta channel.
I've this in my pacman.conf:

  [heftig]
  Server=http://pkgbuild.com/~heftig/repo/i686/

then:

pacman -Suy aurora

You may also want to copy your ~.mozilla/firefox to ~.mozilla/aurora to have the same profile
...then just run aurora.

Or I could go here http://pkgbuild.com/~heftig/repo/x86_64/ and download it. Apparently the font issue isn't present with Aurora. I guess I can call this solved (for now)

Re: [SOLVED]Firefox fonts look horrible on certain pages like Twitter

no the issue is still here. Aurora has no issues and any other browser looks fine. Its mostly just twitter and facebook on firefox specifically. Most of the sites.. like this one look great on firefox... but the fonts related to the comment areas of facebook and most of twitter look horrendous still.

Re: [SOLVED]Firefox fonts look horrible on certain pages like Twitter

alright... I am going to mark this as not solved yet. Some people are probably still having trouble with Firefox specifically. I am using Aurora instead of Firefox now but Aurora isn't really "Firefox" so I will keep this open until this is worked out.
