PfSense Dropdown Menu Text are blurry/Fuzzy



  • HI,

    My laptop T500's ATI video card was dead, so I switch it to the integrated graphic card (Intel). but then the text on pfSense dropdown menu are now blurry/fuzzy using Firefox and Chrome browser,  but IE is fine.  Anyone knows how to fix it on firefox/Chrome? could be a config change inside Firefox/Chrome?

    Thanks.



  • If your on FreeBSD you may need to download some font packages to make your browser display crisply.



  • With the mention of IE, I'm assuming you're on a Windows version of some sort… you might want to make sure that Windows isn't "zooming in" some applications to increase their size. Windows is often set to do this (usually zooming an additional 25% by default) if the screen resolution is very high (and 1920x1080 usually triggers this). Changing the graphics adapter being used may have led this setting to be re-enabled.

    If you have Windows 7 or 8, you can check this setting by going to... Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display (if you prefer not to use the "Categories" view, go to Control Panel > Display). If that's set to 125%, set it to 100%, log out, and see if that makes things better. Since IE is a Microsoft application, it's likely aware of the setting and adjusts its display natively, while Chrome and Firefox will end up being "zoomed" by Windows, making things look fuzzy.

    Thanks for the suggesion. I checked, it was set to 100%.  What I was really puzzled is that only the texts on the drop down menu were blurry/fuzzy.  All other texts were all fine including the texts on the main menu bar and those on the webGUI web pages.
