Firefox updated now all the text looks like it is low resolution or blurry. fine every were else games programs just a problem in Firefox. I tried the page that 4 different "fixes" in Firefox help none of them has helped. Would it be easier just to revert back to before the issue and if so how do i step back a single update.

There are a few things you can try.

Firstly, check that the gfx.text.disable-aa preference in the Configuration Editor for Firefox is set to false. The "AA" stands for anti-aliasing, which is the feature that allows your computer to blend sharp edges on fonts and objects.

Next, ensure that you update your graphics drivers and reinstall them if necessary. If you are already running the latest versions of the drivers, try turning off hardware acceleration.

Finally, if that still doesn't help, see if the issue still occurs when you run Firefox in Safe Mode. If it doesn't happen in Safe Mode, the issue is likely caused by an add-on installed on Firefox.

Hope this helps.

NOTE: You may need to restart Firefox before any of the above changes will take effect.
