"In Windows, the images scale nicely. In Ubuntu 8.04, they become pixellated very quickly."

I hate Linux as a desktop operating system. It is just so un-polished. Everything works with quirks, at best. I noticed this poor image scaling, and instead of a solution I found that other Ubuntu users simply have the same problem.

Once I realized this is a Linux thing, the right search terms lead me to the Mozilla bug:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=422179
The standard depressing sort of multi-year-old (two, in this case) runaround bug that will probably never be fixed.

You may use Markdown syntax in the comment, but no HTML. Hints:

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.
