Hi Stefan

thanks - I tried to deactivate the hardware acceleration, but it has no affect (the linked postings relate to FF 3 / 4 ..). But it seem to depend on the website:

is pixaleted with FF:
- http://www.bsv.admin.ch/kmu/fall/00955/ ... _style=yes

is not pixaleted with FF:
- https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Hauptseite

With IE both sites are printed fine.

Hi Peter,

When it's OK one site and not OK on the other - it's definitely a FF issue, and I am afraid that I do not have any further ideas how you can "fix" this for FF in general. I assume that if you print the same problematic page through another pdf creation tool (if you have such at your end) - the result will still be curves and not actual text.

Regards,
Stefan

Confirmed. "PDFCreator" has same result.

Thanks, it's OK for me.
