Steps to reproduce

go to in Edge and Firefox (my laptop is at 200% system scaling) and look at how jagged the top text looks in Edge compared to Firefox, and look at how awful the small circled “R” looks. I’ve attached a screenshot for comparison, Edge is obviously the top and Firefox is the bottom. I’m not sure if this is a text rendering issue or an image rendering/scaling issue but please fix this!

  • I can confirm this with Edge and Internet Explorer with Build 17025. Firefox 57 and Opera 50 are ok.

  • /r/firefox recently got a makeover and that element (the one in the included screenshot) has changed, I hope this bug is still fixed though because I’m certain the /r/firefox top logo was not the only place that had jagged scaling

  • some new information about this from the person in charge of design at r/Firefox “It was a PNG image that was notably higher resolution than the area it occupied (to allow for hidpi displays) and was scaled down with background-size.”

    I hope this helps! Edge shouldn’t have such blocky jagged scaling

  • attaching what I believe to be another example of this issue (though I’m not certain it’s exactly the same issue) go to and look at the logo in the top left corner, in Edge you can’t even read the “by A BIKINI A DAY” text! That’s really bad! This needs to be fixed. 200% system scaling (and 200% page zoom scaling too)
