Hi,

I am trying firefox quantum, the precompiled version from mozilla. I have both portage version and Quantum, but I am experiencing weird issues with fonts in Quantum. They look "alien" (not smooth, very pixelated) and they don't support special characters very well. They can display them, but in different size than ASCII letters.

Did anyone come across this issue? Maybe I am missing some fonts package?

I dont have a straight answer, just my own experience:

I had ugly pixelated fonts as well, but I manually changed every font from "serif" family to something from "sans" family in Firefox's settings.
I also enabled this config line and restarted Firefox,

I dont have problems with special characters. I have infinality-ultimate-meta package installed with every USE flag enabled.

I think my fonts in Firefox look cool now. Good luck!

EDIT: You could also try downgrading freetype to 2.8, if you are using 2.8.1.
