Hello, I've used Firefox for years, but last time I migrated to Chrome. I'ld like to come back, but I have problems with blur / fuzzy fonts on Firefox.

Before I create this question, I checked several topics. - Disable HA - no results - Use Anti-Alias Tuner - no results - change gfx.content.azure.enabled etc. - no results

I tried several version - stable, ESR, beta, aurora... still without results. Change graphics driver... nothing.

Last option - I compared fonts in Firefox and Chrome during changing settings. All is very silimiar, except one details - alias colors, see:

I think, this may cause blur effect and tired eyes. Is it possible, to change this?

In startup preferences i set "show tabs from previous session". when firefox starts up, it displays previous pinned tabs but also a new tab (active one) showing the google homepage. is it possible to make firefox startup showing only the pinned tabs, without a new home page tab? version - 20.0 - beta channel scenario: i have a script which opens multiple profiles of firefox (e.g. 1 for mail, 1 for development, 1 for reading). each have their own pinned tabs. when startup each profile, all pinned tabs are loaded but the active tab is a new home page tab (or blank tab).

My Mozilla used to show Korean characters till last week, but now it displays them in shape of squares with tiny numbers. I've tried all kinds of encodings but they're still not shown. I'm sure that my computers has the East Asian Support for languages, it displays Korean files correctly but in all of my browsers ( Mozilla, Explorer and Chrome ), suddenly, Korean characters are shown as squares.

I'll be thankful to the one who can solve my problem, 'cuz Korean language displaying is really important to me.

I have Mozilla 20 Beta.

-win 7 64 - all Firefox versions (tested 17 to 20.b) keep crashing unless used in XP sp3 compatibility

Since yesterday my firefox keeps crashing, sometimes I get the option to reset firefox or start in safe mode. Only using the safe mode firefox works properly (but without plugins/addons)

So I did a fresh reinstall (without add ons etc) thinking to fix the problem. I was using v19 when all this happened then downgraded to v17 in the hope to fix it. By now I've tried v17 to v20b and all keep crashing when used 'normally' After the fresh install I no longer have the option to use the firefox safe mode.

If my memory serves me correctly I had just update Java around the time of the first crash. I also tried to use the auto update of win7 but those failed. So I've also uninstalled all java components, installed firefox fresh and tried to launch firefox, before and after reinstalling java.

in all situations is crashes right away.

The only way to make firefox work now is using the winXP (sp3) compatibility from windows.

I have no win7 system restore points so this is no option to use. All other software (and browser) work fine.. only firefox crashes all the time.

how to solve this? I have looked around and followed all suggestions I could find to topics slightly related to mine, but nothing works.

here are my 5 last crash reports:

bp-5c91d587-5e12-4078-8046-0d7ca2130305

bp-f4292032-9ab9-4682-ac42-3fcaa2130305

it happens sometimes that I'm searching for something and that suddenly the search engine changes form Google to bing... Which is by far a worse search engine compared to Google. I did not install bing as engine in the navigation 'space' somewhere in the upper part of the computer screen, where you find this small triangle which makes it possible to change the search engine from e.g wikipedia to Google... It's an irritating and annoying experience that distracts enormously...

The eBay sidebar is not operating with Firefox 20 Beta. I can navigate its tabs but cannot get any content or sign in to eBay with it. It was working until a recent firefox upgrade. I have tried uninstalling the sidebar and reinstalling it but nothing changed. I have just updated Firefox to version 20.3 Beta but there is no improvement with the eBay sidebar on that. Please advise on a solution as I use the eBay sidebar most of the time.

Apparently pushed the wrong "Download" button. Now instead of my homepage (which I have reset), when I open Firefox the "search.conduit.com" page opens. I used the "about:config" procedure several times but it didn't work. There is nothing listed on "add/remove" that is related. Also scanned with Ad-aware, Super AntiSpyware and Norton 360. How do I clean search.conduit out of my browser?

Hi guys,

Is there a way to change default fonts on Firefox for better and clearer ones?

Although I don't like it much, I use IE 9 for some websites which don't support Firefox. After visiting a couple of websites I realized IE has clearer fonts than Firefox. I read a lot on the internet and I found much better doing it with IE 9 fonts than with Firefox.

I'm using Firefox 20 and IE 9 on Windows 7 Pro 32bits.

I attach an image to be clearer on what I say. I hope you understand.

PS: I've already tried disabling "hardware acceleration" but still no joy.
