Firefox 64 made fonts ungly with ClearType kind of smoothing

Posted

I hate all kinds of text smoothing/antialiasing with passion and for he longest time I had none of it in Firefox, yet after upgrading to FF64 some kind of text antialiasing has been forced on me for some reason. At first it was all over the browser, then in a minute it glitched out and disappeared from actual pages, yet it's still all over the interface: on tab names, on bookmark names in the bookmark panel (but strangely not inside bookmark folders), it's in the address and search bars, in the "File, Edit, etc." menu and some other menus as well.

How do I get rid of all text antialiasing for good?
