    I think Firefox 4 RC is the latest release, not the final.

    You can download final version since 21 March. Try it.

    Working fine on Firefox 4 on OS X.

    Are you using FF on Windows?

    It's been like this since the early FF4 betas on Windows and now the final release too.

    Windows 7, 64bit.

    Firefox 4.0 final = No problems with display, looks fine to me.

    As I've been unable to reproduce this, could those reporting the problem please post again stating the following:
    • If you see the problem here on XenForo.com
    • Your operating system and version
    • Your exact Firefox version

    Have you guys done a hard-refresh (CTRL-F5) also in FF 4 Final to clear the cache?

    My install is completely fresh, which I do with a new major browser release. I exported my bookmarks, then did an uninstall of the previous FF and an install of the new FF. Not sure if that made any difference.

    This appears to be a bug related to Firefox 4 with older versions of Windows. A little investigation with Firebug shows that ALL triangles in Firefox 4 have a hard, uncontrollable border.

    Compare the following - on the left is FF4 under Windows XP, and on the right is FF4 on Mac OS. In both cases I have used Firebug to move the inner triangle on the user info block to the left by a few pixels, and recolored it yellow.

    This looks like a fairly clear bug in Firefox related to Windows rendering to me. There's certainly nothing that we can do about it.

    Kier, and what you think about this?
    .breadcrumb .crust .arrow {
        -moz-border-right-colors: #a5cae4;
    .breadcrumb .crust .arrow span {
        -moz-border-right-colors: #f0f7fc;
    .messageUserBlock .arrow {
        -moz-border-right-colors: #d7edfc;
    .messageUserBlock .arrow span {
        -moz-border-right-colors: #f0f7fc;
    This fix it... :)

    It does, but I'm reluctant to add a large amount of redundant, browser-specific CSS to fix what is clearly a browser bug that will almost certainly receive a fix from Mozilla fairly shortly.

    Weird, I was seeing this here on XF.com and on all my styles yesterday then today all seems good. Win7 & FF4 not sure the exact version number as it is only showing version 4.0 in the "About FireFox" section.

    I have tracked it down to a bug with GDI rendering in Firefox 4, which would explain why only those with older versions of Windows see the bug.

    I am on Windows 7 SP1 but have Direct2D specifically disabled via gfx.direct2d.disabled in about:config due to the horrendously bad font rendering it brings with it.

    It hasn't been fixed throughout the entire beta phase, but then again maybe it hasn't been noticed/reported. I'll see about filing a bug report later.

    Unfortunate that this still occurs, on latest Firefox and latest Windows 8 RP.

    There are endless Mozilla bug reports/threads about both their font problems and hardware acceleration issues and not ONE of the temporary workarounds fixes both the fonts AND the arrows.

    Wish these would get fixed.
