    For the longest time it has been doing this. The text is very thick and distorted. Where it says "Ratings and Reviews, Related, Songs, $9.99 Buy, 0.99 and Preview all" It is not supposed to look like that. It does this on my browsers too.



    look at how distorted that is.



    Here is how it should look.

    Some system specs would help. If you are on a Laptop with no contrast setting, other than high contrast mode, my suggestion is to calibrate your color settings. Pay special attention to the page where you adjust Gamma. That helped on my Toshiba Laptop quite a bit.

    If you search Color Calibration on the page for your PC it should show you hot to run it. It's pretty intuitive once you find the button to run it. If text is still very fuzzy run the Gamma part again. That's the most important.

    The issue was windows using "Helvetica Neue" font. Deleting that fixed said issue. And for future reference I am updating my specs on this forum. Thank you.
