Blurry/ugly font-rendering in Firefox 4 RC

The font-rendering in Firefox 4 RC doesn't look quite right; the fonts are too light and seem a bit blurry. With hardware acceleration disabled, they look much better, but I'd rather not disable hardware acceleration if possible since I would lose out on the benefits of it. Here are some comparisons: Internet explorer and Firefox 4 RC font-rendering and Firefox 3.6.15 and Firefox 4 RC font-rendering You can also see how the spacing is a bit odd with Firefox 4 RC.

This is on Windows 7 SP1 64-bit with a Radeon HD5850 (latest drivers) if it makes any difference.

Is my only option to disable hardware acceleration?
