Interesting issue with DirectWrite

  • Hello, I've noticed a very interesting and slightly annoying issue with DirectWrite.

    I'm using Opera 35.0.2066.92 and although DirectWrite works a lot better than before and text is generally not blurry I found a specific instant where it gets blurry and this is in the small facebook chat window. Now this is the interesting part, it only blurs the chat's fonts when I place the chat window over an element such as a video or a gif animation. Over other photos and text, the fonts work great.

    Any idea how can I fix this? When I disable DirectWrite through flags the issue is gone but fonts look pixelated and thin.
