Text in 4b5 is somewhat blurry on most sites; text was clear in 4b4 and earlier. How can I fix this?
On the left is FF 4b5, with slightly blurry text on Lifehacker. On the right is Chrome 6.0.472.59 beta, without the blurry text.
I should note that the blurry text was not an issue in FF 4b4 or earlier.
I have also upgraded just now to 4b6, and the same issue is present.

if you set mozilla.widget.render-mode in about:config to 0 (default is -1) your text will also look nice again.Read this answer in context 👍 6

This is caused by hardware acceleration. You can resort to the previous font rendering by turning off hardware acceleration. To do that open the options dialog (Click on the Firefox button, then select Options...), go to the Advanced panel then select the General tab, then de-select the setting to use hardware acceleration.

Neither of these fix the problem.
