Hello!

 

I've just begun to run Windows 7 for the first time. I'm running a dual monitor setup (the primary Dell E228WFP connected via DVI-D, secondary ViewSonic VX2035wm connected via VGA), and I've been having a lot of fun so far.

 

On my primary monitor, however, there's a bit of an annoying phenomenon: sometimes, the text on the screen will be blurred. Once I mouse over it or highlight it, it'll be legible again. I've done the ClearType setup a couple times, but it still seems be happening. It's far from a showstopper, but it'd be nice to have it not happen. Is there some way to fix this?

 

Edit: Upon further googling, it seems this is just a Firefox problem rather than a Windows 7 one. I suppose this topic is inappropriate for this forum now.

Obviously a browser and not OS.
Thanks to you both.

Yeah, I'm sorry guys. Don't be too hasty in asking for help, I guess.

 

Turning off hardware acceleration has stopped the blurred text as far as I can tell. If anything ends up happening, I'll post again.
