Can we PLEASE set the font(s) used in Preferences?

This new one really sucks oil with my browser and setup. It does not zoom well, like the Last One.

I'm sure it looks better on someone's screen but for me it's Yet Another Forum Malady.

Holy crap, you're absolutely right.

This font is really bad.
I don't know what happened, when it changed.
I was online with my laptop earlier today and didn't see any problem with the font.
But now, with the desktop (zoomed in, 3 taps on ctrl +), it's really bad where it has been OK for months.
I'm using Firefox, if that helps in determining what might be wrong.

Have a look at "blink without delay".
Did you connect the grounds ?

Agreed. The text looks like it was written with a leaking fountain pen. I've had to increase the size of the font (Control +) so that letters such as 'e' and 'a' aren't almost illegible blobs.

Which screen resolution are you using?
Of course so broken labels are not a "feature", your bad visualization may depend by some condition not properly tested by designers.

I get dodgy rendering too, the reference section is bad, the code examples are all missing the tops of letters.

Firefox 30.0 1280x1024 (native monitor resolution)
I also suffer the font problems with Reference/Preview.

Seamonkey (Mozilla) at 1440x900 (native) and the font looks good at 100% but my eyes are a bit strained at that size and hurt enough to detract my attention before long.  At 150% it's good but so big it's near useless. At the 120% I view practically everything with, it's spotty.

But get this. I resized three times while typing this up and when I got back to 120% it looks good.
Done this before. When I go back to viewing posts I will look like crap again.

PS -- yup, like an old daisy wheel printout make with a spotty ribbon.
