Fonts weirdness on 27.5.0

Compare the rendering of https://www.youtube.com/user/standupmaths/videos on 27.4.2 and 27.5.0
(see attached files). This is just an example; similar things happen on other pages.

See Issue #1346 and viewtopic.php?f=4&t=16576

How to return to the old design Youtube? You can use (for about:config) e.g.:

general.useragent.override.youtube.com

Code: Select all

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:43.9) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/43.9 (Pale Moon)

Pale Moon 27.5.0 x64 native mode and default override "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:52.9) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.9 (Pale Moon)" on W7: seeing the same image/font styles as your 27.4.2 gif.

Thanks - setting UserAgent worked. It just never occurred to me that it could be something YouTube were doing; why would they push out such an ugly, broken interface?

What is the equivalent for Linux?
ImageBe not the first by whom the new are tried, nor yet the last to lay the old aside.
