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?

I'm trying to change the layout of the new beta 8 browser, I would like to put the tab bar up into the title bar. The only problem with this is that the Home button and the New Tab button then stop working. I know that the Home button is called "home-button" but I don't know what the new tab button is called. I was merely wondering if there was a way of finding this out at all and if so how I would go about it.

Thanks.

Is there a keyboard shortcut for the 'group your tabs' screen? It would be a great improvement if FF would have this, since a lot of people do almost all their browsing with their keyboard...

I could just show icons in the Bookmarks Toolbar in previous Firefox versions but was this done via an Add-on? Anyway, would like to do this in Firefox 4 (beta 6). I can delete the text item by item but this is laborious and means that the text no longer displays when I hover the mouse over the icon. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

In FF 3.x two commands: "open in window" and "open in new tab" have got just this order. But - I don't know why - in FF 4.x the order is reversed. Every time when I click right button of my mouse and select the second option - where in FF 3.x I've got "open in new tab" I can see web site in a new window, not in a new tab.

How can I change it? I tried editor menu and I edited userchrome.css, but it's not working or I don't know how to change it. Without it I must uninstall FF 4.x because it's unusable.

I bought a new laptop with a resolution of 1920x1080. Whenever I open sites with firefox, they appear small. I have to press ctrl++ to zoom in for every page I visit. This is getting annoying. Is there any way to permanently zoom a page so I don't have to do it for every website?

P.S. I know that I can increase the font size permanently that that doesn't help with the images and the page doesn't render correctly.

Under Windows 7, it was possible in Ffx 4.0b8 to see a preview of all tabs in the windows taskbar and select a tabs from the preview to show it. It was usefull, for example, only to check if the iGoogle page updates and there is new mail or this kind of things.

The taskbar icons looked like several pages when several tabs where opened.

Now, in 4.0b9, all this disappears, I can only see the preview of the actual active tabs and not the others tabs. I can't select an another tabs from the windows taskbar. The icon in the taskbar doesn't look like several page when several tabs are opened

After installing 4.0b5 i noticed that the Add A New Tab button is moved all the way to the right (right next to the panorama button) and is not right after the last opened tab. After opening enough tabs to fill out my url bar the Add A New Tab button suddenly went in a position that was right after the last opened tab. That effect lasted until i closed Firefox, after what the Add A New Tab button was again at the far right. Is this how it suppose to work or is it a bug ? Since i would do anything to have the Add A New Tab button right after my last opened tab is there a way to make it stay right after the last opened tab or ill have to wait for a another version ?

Ubuntu 10.10 Firefox 4.0b9 french

Désolé mais je ne suis doué ni en anglais ni en informatique. Avec la version 4 beta, je ne trouve plus ni en bas de l'écran ni ailleurs ce qu'on appelle la "barre d'état" en français et qui est bien utile pour savoir si une page se charge ou non. A-t-elle quelque chose qui la remplace ? Y a-t-il un truc à cocher quelque part (sur la version 3, c'est dans "affichage") ? Est-ce un mauvais réglage de ma part ou un bug ? Merci pour tout ce que vous faites. Cordialement, Michel Astre

The option to restore previous session on start up does not work now. Firefox asks to close all the tabs and loads homepage on startup.

I would LOVE it if Firefox added a Gallery of a persons favorite websites like Chrome, Opera, and Safari does.

Safari does it the best and in the most visually appealing way. I just like being able to open up the web browser and selecting from my Top 9 or 12 sites rather than have to use the drop down arrow to go from one site to another.

Or opening a new tab and being presented with the Gallery of Top Sites or the Home Page would be a nice addition.

PLEASE Mozilla developers make it happen!
