Firefox developer edition - font smoothness in menu options

Posted

After updating Firefox developer edition to version 51 (Windows 7, 64bit) I noticed some font rendering issues in the Options menu and Dev tools menu. The font is blured and not clear (looks like font smoothing is disabled). If I go to Safe mode (Restart with disabled addons) - the Options menu font is clear and good looking (readable) again, but in this mode the directwrite is disabled, of course.

In the normal Firefox (version 49, not Developer edition) the Options menu and Dev tools menu fonts are pretty fine - no issues at all.

I tried to refresh the Developer edition but the result is the same.

I checked my home laptop and it was the same - after updating Developer edition to version 51 - the Options menu/Devtools menu fonts sucks there, too.

So what could I do?

Hi, Ideato,

Thanks for yor answer! You mean to remove the directwrite and set GDI with this option, right? I tried it a couple of days ago, until browsing the net for solutions - but it is the same, again - no change at all.

Somewhere at mozilla pages I found it has to do with these css rendering settings for the app: font-smooth: auto; font-smooth: never; font-smooth: always; but I could not find where those app css settings are (not in the profile folder which I full-text searched).

bad font smoothing came with v52.0a2 while it was mostly clear (in the app, not all webpages) in v51.0a2

and again, like in a dictatorship, !someone! just dumped in on users, instead of first asking, or making it an !option!...how about that...or at least explaining where it can be !adjusted!
