cause of smeary, ghosty text on opera

  • Help, I cannot figure out why this is happening. All the fonts and button are all smeary and ghosted. If I hover over them within the page, they become bolder and straighter. I uninstalled O. then reinstalled. I have defragged, I have run anti virus and spyware... I cannot figure it out..

    the cursor is even thin and ghosts to the top and bottom.. HELP! It does not do it in my Pale Moon, it is now doing it in Chrome...
    What gives? Any ideas?? wool ee acre @yahoo. com 🇳🇴

  • What's your system and did you do any themes or layout customisation on it?
    Then what's your Opera version? You say it happens in other browsers too?
    Have a screenshot or something?

  • Video hardware? We had similar problems on some systems in the old Presto-based Opera depending on hardware acceleration ...

  • [psst]I don't know, but I couldn't see any convincing differences whenever I ticked/unticked that "acceleration" (if that was that).[/psst]

  • It depends on what computer hardware you have/are using whether that option has a positive or negative affect on Opera's ability to display content correctly.
