    How to fix browser fonts in Firefox and Chrome broken by Windows 10 update?

    A recent Windows 10 update broke the browser fonts in Firefox and Chrome. But everything looks fine in Edge. This image shows the same content in Firefox, Edge, and Chrome, from left to right. (Ignore the 'redacting'. Look at the fonts.)

    What did Windows update change? How can I fix the font rendering in non-Microsoft browsers?

  3. How to fix browser fonts in Firefox and Chrome broken by Windows 10 update?

    Assuming Windows 10 64-bit...

    Please answer each of the following [admittedly tedious] diagnostic questions in a correspondingly-numbered list in your very next reply, preferably
    without quoting this post:

    1. When (approx. date) did you purchase the Dell computer?

    2a. When (exact date, preferably) did you upgrade to Win10 (not Win10 Anniversary Update)?

    2b. Was the upgrade to Windows 10 (not Windows 10 Anniversary Update) offered & installed via Windows Update or did you upgrade manually?

    3a. When (approx. date) was Windows 10 Anniversary Update installed?

    3b. Was Windows 10 Anniversary Update offered & installed via Windows Update or did you install it manually?

    4. What is the full name of your currently-installed third-party anti-virus application or security suite - i.e.,
    not Windows Defender! - (if any), and when (approx. date) does your current subscription
    (if any) expire?

    5. Did you run the McAfee Consumer Products Removal Tool before or after you upgraded to Win10 (not Win10 Anniversary Update)?

    6. When (exact date) was KB3194496 installed according to Installed Updates
    (not Update History)? [1]

    7. Is Adobe Flash Player version 23.0.0.162 (or higher) installed? TEST HERE USING INTERNET EXPLORER OR EDGE
    ONLY! =>
    http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/


    8a. Is Firefox version 49.0.1 (or higher) installed?

    8b. Is Google Chrome version 53.0.2785.143 (or higher) installed?

    9. Are you in the habit of using "Registry cleaners" (e.g., CCleaner's Registry Cleaner
    component; Registry Mechanic; System Mechanic; RegCure; RegClean Pro; Advanced SystemCare; Total System Care; Advanced System Optimizer; Comodo System Cleaner; Glary Utilities; Registry Booster;
    McAfee QuickClean; AVG Quick Clean; AVG PC TuneUp; Norton Registry Cleaner;
    Norton PC Tuneup; PCTools Optimiser; SpeedUpMyPC; FixMyPC; PC Doctor; TuneUp Utilities; WinMaximizer; WinSweeper; Wise Care 365; Wise Cleaner; etc.)?

    Referring to the fonts in the taskbar ? Will the browsers open ?

    Are they listed in Programs on the Control Panel ?

    If they open, I would recommend saving your favorites to file and uninstall/reinstall.

    referring to fonts on web pages that I open in firefox or chrome, they have never been washed out, always dark and clear, update did something I am guessing

    Check your display driver, though if it needed update other issues would likely be noticed.

    Just for giggles, may want to reinstall the display driver to see if any change.
