No way i can reinstall whole os i spent quite a time on configuring everything the problem is with the gtk system rendering font, maybe. it somehow does not renders the font don’t know why
Like i use vscode i open it it looks normal but when i choose to open a file or folder the madness comes up
It all started after the update everything was perfectly find untill then
And even when using preinstalled application if i choose to open something it again does not render fonts perfectly and some other applications do not work as well it must be something related to the way fonts are behaving I don’t know much about linux but this is what i think possibly be happening
This can be the discussion thread for font render issue since it has the most replies (please be sure to search before posting new topics: a friendly reminder, other ppl posted multiple topics on this)
I have pinned this topic for 1 week and transferred the latest post on font render problem (including screen shot) to 4.8 bug reports thread to make sure it gets proper attention:
If you have anything important to add the above link is the thread to add important info, but only if you have additional info to add. I am going to temporarily pin this thread for discussion and delete others that have no additional info to add.
I think the issue is based on the software, I encounter the issue in mozilla but in brave browser its working fine. Also, when I tried to attached file in thunder, issue occurred. Some of my application encounter the same issue like filezilla and remmina. I think it depends on the software of the OS.
These softwares come pre-installed but still they arr having issues they worked fine before it is not related to software itself since it’s happening system-wide also file manager is having problem too then does that mean to remove it as well?

Try Regenerating the fonts cache : sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig fontconfig-config
You can also run this as a user with fc-cache -fv
