Widget Text Blurry in IE

  1. I'm using a Twenty Eleven child theme and have some widgets in the right sidebar (Links, Text, and Simple Facebook Connect). In Firefox, the text in the widget area looks fine; in IE8, it's incredibly blurry. I suspect it has something to do with the way IE "smooths" text, but the text on this "Add New Topic" page, for example, is as small as if not smaller than the widget text and it's nowhere near that blurry.

    A couple of screenshots - first the Firefox version:

    And the IE:

    I know upgrading to IE9 might solve the problem, but a significant number of the people visiting the site are older and will not be on the cutting edge of browser version. (I suspect most of them are still using IE7 or earlier, actually!) So if it is at all possible to correct the issue on my side of things, rather than requiring visitors to get a new browser, that would be ideal.

  2. With regard to browser issues note that you can upgrade your browser here http://browsehappy.com

    Twenty Eleven child theme

    The only themes we can install on free hosted WordPress.COM blogs are found here > Appearance > Themes and there is no "Twenty Eleven child theme" available to us here as no "Twenty Eleven child themes" have been coded to run on our multiuser blogging software. You are posting to the wrong support forum. You need to post to http://wordpress.ORG/support/
