Fonts weirdness on 27.5.0

Postby MichaelGordon » Wed Sep 27, 2017 1:51 pm

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?
