Font is blurry, works if I go into firefox "Safe Mode"

Posted

It's not the font on the text that I type with, but the Address bar, Bookmarks(Include the images), so everything above the tabs(Include the tab text/images), and the right click menu. If I go into Firefox safe mode it all works fine, I have tried to disable all addons but the problem is still there.

Edit: Tried to Reset firefox to default, didn't work. Uninstalled firefox and removed everything, didn't work. Downloaded firefox portable from portable apps, works, but I don't want to have it portable.

Also, you can try to right-click and Toggle the key gfx.font_rendering.directwrite.enabled to false in about:config.

  1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
  2. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.

about:config Entries

The Config Descriptions add-on adds helpful source comments in about:config.

Hardware acceleration

Advanced

Safe mode also disables hardware acceleration and themes in addition to extensions.
