Reloaded windows 10 and firefox now text is blurry, not sharp characters as before, what to do?
After restoring windows 10 and reinstalling Firefox all my script is blurred, not sharp characters as before.All web pages,everything including this page. Have tried everything I can think of, hardware accelerator, etc. Help please. Thank you, Mike
Ok, went back and turned cleartype on and now text is clear. Not sure if turning clear type on, removing skia or doing both fixed it but it's fixed! Thanks to all!!!!!Read this answer in context 1

Is it just plain text that's blurry or does it include images? just in Firefox or the whole computer?
If you just restored Win10 I would go and update your Videocard drivers first.
And make sure all updates for 10 are installed.

It is computer wide. Does not include images just text. Updated everything I can think of including graphics card and windows. At a loss...
BTW, had a similar conflict issue last I updated, can't remember what it was but not this and installing earlier version of Fire fox fixed it. Already tried that, no change.
Make sure that ClearType is enabled globally for all applications.
Firefox 52+ has changed from Cairo to Skia for canvas/content rendering.
- When not using Direct2D on Windows, Skia is used for content rendering
You can modify these gfx.*.azure.backends prefs on the about:config page to revert to the old font rendering swap the skia,cairo order to cairo,skia or remove the skia and leave cairo.
- gfx.canvas.azure.backends = direct2d1.1,cairo,skia
- gfx.content.azure.backends = direct2d1.1,cairo,skia
You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I'll be careful" to continue.
Removed skia from both gfx files and restarted computer. No change, script still blurred.
