Here's a pic from Seamonkey 2.46 . http://nightgazer.altervista.org/Test_One.png

As you can see comparing them, the text in 2.49.4 is darker and blurrier. This makes reading it practically impossible. This same error has been happening since any build after 2.46 . This is why I've decided to stick with 2.46 . It's the last build of Seamonkey made that actually has readable text.

I hope that y'all will fix this problem in the next release. Otherwise I will have to stick with 2.46 . Forever.

Have a nice day, and live long.

Almost forgot to mention.

I'm using Win XP Pro SP3 32-bit OS.

Hope that helps.

Have you run Windows ClearType lately?
Try disabling SM Hardware Acceleration and restarting.(if it's enabled)

@I seem to recall some kind of interaction between them?

(Not sure that your screenshots are working?
It would seem that your links should be something more like (at least for 1 of them):
