I'm using Firefox 40.0. Compared to Chrome and IE, Firefox renders text in a jagged, blurry way. I've reviewed various solutions suggested in other threads and they haven't worked.

I've included a screenshot of the way my web pages look in FF. I'm including my Troubleshooting information to see if anyone has any new suggestions of how to address this:

hello, it looks like this is happening on a amd/intel dual-gpu setup - is there a way in the amd catalyst control panel to set the dedicated amd gpu as renderer for firefox?
