    Chromium text going fuzzy.


    Hey all.

    Today when I started up chromium I noticed that on some webpages the text was going a bit blurry. The same happens in chrome as well but Firefox is fine. My resolution is fine and I don't remember doing anything that might have changed anything. With some pages it starts of fine but after a second or two it goes blurry.

    I've attached a screen shot with a example. left webpage is in Firefox, right webpage is in chromium. anyone know whats wrong?

    Bad update maybe? Or a bad addon? Have you tried running it in safe mode or in whatever chrome mode runs the browser with no addons? I don't know chrome. But browser corruption is so common that both IE and FF have tools for resetting the browser back to its original install state; you can see if chrome has that. If those fail then next step to try would be to purge it and reinstall it. It could also be a video driver issue. You might want to check and see if there was a recent update to your video driver? If so you may need to roll back the driver, or go to source and get a driver newer than what is in the repos or update chrome to iron it out. It could be a kernel issue too? Maybe a new update to the kernel is not playing nice. It happens all the time. In which case you can wait for an update to fix it or try installing / booting from an older version of the kernel and see if it works.

    Well I started up my computer today and it seems to have stopped doing now. I don't remember changing anything so I have no Idea what went wrong. Will continue to monitor it and see if it starts doing it again.
