Fonts look strange in outgoing email when using Opera

  • When typing into a box (as I am doing now, or as I am doing when I type outgoing email) when using Opera (or Firefox), the font looks like a typewriter ribbon that doesn't have enough ink.

    I can go to IE and do the exact same activity and the font looks fine. The biggest problem with this is, the font is so faint I can't really tell whether I've typed a capital letter or a lower case one. If I could upload a screen shot, I could show you what I mean.

    Interestingly, when I view the Preview box, everything looks fine and normal. It's only when I'm in the middle of typing (is this a javascript problem?) that it looks weird.

    How do I fix this? Thanks.

  • This may be a Windows problem. I have Vista. Opera is brand new for me so no, updating won't help, since I just got it. I switched away from Firefox because I suddenly developed this problem and support was so poor. Now I'm having the same problem on Opera.
