Weird Text Shadows on Google Reader in Firefox 3.1/3.5 Betas

firefox-beta-google-reader-text-shadow

Does anybody else get these? When you navigate to your labels or subscriptions using keyboard shortcuts, the highlighted item in this modal window thing has a text “shadow” or duplicate sitting ten pixels over to the left. It’s been bothering me for a while now and I can’t find anybody else talking about it. I guess I’m supposed to file a bug?

    Yes, I’m having the same problem and was wondering whether my recent tinkering with .fonts.conf caused it.

    BTW, love the design of your blog, aesthetically done.

    Thanks greefea.

    I’m getting this problem in Windows too, however, so I don’t think it’s a Linux thing. I don’t know if Google Reader does any text-shadow CSS stuff, but if they do, it might be that the Firefox betas are rendering it incorrectly. I’d be surprised if they haven’t caught it by this point though.
