I am new to the forum and a newbie of expression web 4 (which means you are probably going to see me around in the next months...). More than one year ago I decided to make my own website and started from scratch to learn using EW4. I didn't go farther than the backbone of my homepage at the time, but everything was looking fine at least (I think I was using Firefox 3 to preview my website at the time).
I then stopped for a while working on it and finally decided to get back on track and add some features, but to my surprise, fonts that were looking fine are now fuzzy in Firefox 11, but OK in IE8. Here is a snapshot comparing the two browser (Firefox on the right and IE8 on the left).
It doesn't seem to make a difference changing the font.
I am using Windows 7 64-bit, EW4 with SP2.
Any idea how to make the text look fine in both browser?
Thanks a lot!

Welcome to the forum.
Please read the "Forum FAQ ... Start Here" post. Come back with the information we need once you've done that. :)

I figured that the only thing I did not write is a link to the website (hence why I posted the screenshot comparison); in fact I did not publish the website (that was far in the list of "to learn" things :-) and to be honest I have no idea how to make the code available; could you please point me to somewhere I can temporarily publish the website so that everybody can see the code? Or would it be the same to paste the code view from EW4?

Yes, publish the site and post a link. And, no, pasting code (or screenshots) here won't help. We need to see the site in situ. Publishing the site will let us see if we see the same issue you do. If we don't, it's not a site or EW issue, but an issue with your settings or installation of Firefox; if we do, we can try to figure out why.
I can't point you to where you can publish the site. Ask your internet provider if they offer free space you can publish to. Or, buy a domain and hosting account: you plan to publish the site at some point, I assume, and there's no reason not to get that set up now. :)

No, as Kathy said, the code is meaningless in isolation. We must see it in situ, with associated images, CSS, and scripting, if any.
However, on the "could you please point me to somewhere I can temporarily publish the website so that everybody can see the code?" front, yes, by all means. CoffeeCup Software offers free hosting space, and a free subdomain-based URL you can use to access it, here: http://www.coffeecup.com/sdrive/. It's only about 500MB, IIRC, but that should be plenty for your purposes. It also enables you to create a "stream," a blog-like commentary area. Here is one that I created about a year ago, when they were still in beta on this, and asked me to try it out. It discusses the service in a good deal more detail, though still somewhat fuzzy due to the beta status.
Note that, unless things have changed, you must use a CoffeeCup product to publish to it. Not a problem, as they offer a free, limited version of CoffeeCup Direct FTP, called Free FTP, which you can use to publish your site. And, of course, they may have changed that policy in the interim.
Check it out. I think it will do what you need. ;-)

thanks for the tips, I'll try to figure out how the publishing business works and come back when I have managed!

I have finally managed to publish the website and I have indeed followed the advice of buying a domain and hosting account. I have also found the reason for the fuzzy fonts; it looks like there was an additional line in the editor linking to an external style sheet...the funny thing is that I forgot why I put this line there...I edited the page too long ago....quite embarrassing, but removing the line solves the issue :-)
Thanks for the help so far, I learned better how it works here and now that the web page is published I'll be able to be more precise next time I "can't" solve a problem!Andrea
