Hi, I'm seeing ugly fonts in Firefox, or more specifically, they are incorrectly rendered.

It can be seen in this screenshot: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/55732698/ugly_fonts.png
(look at the words "overview" and "world")

I'm using radeonSI drivers and Aurora 32.0.5.

I've also had instances of Firefox rendering text weirdly:

It went away again after a while.


Edit: Someone claims it was the update to from media-fonts/dejavu-2.33 to 2.34

It seems that you are right, and that the problem has gone away now.

The first screenshot problem happens because AccelMethod "glamor" is broken. I get the same problem on r600 but only when that's set. On newer cards you might not have the option to turn that off though...

Thank you, I think you are right. The problem came back a while after I set it to solved. I hope xorg 1.17 will fix it for us!
