Is there retina display support for new Firefox 19?
My Macbook Pro retina just upgraded automatically to version 19. Version 18 had Retina support, which was awesome, but since the upgrade, my browser is pixelated again. Any retina support on the new 19 version as well?

Yes, Retina support was introduced in 18 and is still in 19. Try to Reset Firefox Reset Firefox – easily fix most problems
Retina support was introduced in fx18 but had several issues but should still be supported in fx19.
I can not remember whether it was just fx18.0.1 but at sometimes fixes were to turn it off !! because of the problems. Have you checked it is actually on.
- see thread firefox 18.0.1 disabled retina support
- also experiment with Hardware acceleration on or off

I will have to keep an eye on the me too votes on this thread,if a lot of others have problems I will look at the bugs and see if i can find out anything more over there.
Note the easy option of using Firefox reset will remove your extensions, also alter a few other things,

Tried it, but nothing happened. Google is still fuzzy, for example.
Can you type about:support into the address bar, press Enter, and then copy that information here?

Let me know if you prefer screenshots.
Let me do some checking around. Meanwhile, would you mind making sure that Mac is fully up to date, Restarting your computer, Trying with Hardware acceleration disabled, etc.? Turning off hardware acceleration
I checked and I installed a Java update for my Mac. Hardware acceleration is turned off...
Can you play with Hardware Acceleration? Is it better with it on? Better with it off? After a restart, etc.?
Reset the page zoom on pages that cause problems.
- View > Zoom > Reset (Ctrl+0 (zero); Cmd+0 on Mac)
I honestly don't see any difference between having Hardware Acceleration on/off. Even after a restart.
Hi, have you found a solution?
Tired that; no dice.
on Firefox 19
layers.acceleration.disabled = true
gfx.hidpi.enabled = 2
ps: I work with Flash and the only problem is that Flash player is soo soo soooo laggy now. But everything else works perfect.
Google is now working. Facebook logo is still grainy, as are some graphics on this help page. Eh, good enough for me.
OK, so it looks like Facebook is now in retina-display...I don't know what happened or what fixed it.
But it looks like things are resolved...somehow.
Is there any other fix to make Firefox 19 look better on the MBP Retina?
I tried changing the values in about:config but i didn`t see much differance at all..surely there must be a way to make FF look sharper on the retina display.
I still think it looks very soft and also kind of fuzzy on my Retina display.
