Windows 7: Firefox font issues

Firefox font issues

I have been using FF for many years Ver 3, 4, and now 9. I have put up with font issues all that time but now I've got to fix it or change browsers.

On some (not all) web sites the characters overlay each other, often to the point it is impossible to read. Also, graphics such as calendars will display but not to the point you can see the entire graphic. Basically, text and graphics overlay each other.

If I reduce the font size (in FF options) I can improve the display but often I have to reduce it to such a small font size it becomes difficult to read.

Currently using FF 9.0.1 running under Win 7 64bit.

Please, please tell me I'm not the only one that's ever had this problem!

I usually change the font to Segoe UI Semibold but not the size. Also I don't use Zoom only option.

type fonts into the start search, open the fonts folder and check to see if you have any duplicate fonts. if so delete the duplicates,
be careful as some fonts will have the same name but be upper or lower case etc.
