Angry Firefox & GTK-Qt theme


Firefox just hooks horrible with it, and widgets aren't even drawn correctly. Why is that, and how to fix it?

My issue has zero to do with fonts.

Glitches are to be expected in this case, since Firefox isn't even a proper GTK+ application, but Xul drawn into GTK+, which in turn is drawn using Qt. I remember a famous one about the scroll bar. You could try changing the kde theme, or just use qtcurve, then you won't need the gtk-qt-engine.

QtCurve is the answer

I'd agree, after far too long of fighting with this, I just installed the QtCurve theme for KDE and GTk and I've been using that, which works fine.

No, it doesn't solve the issue, but the GTk-Qt-engine app doesn't solve the issue either.
