Recently did a clean install of Windows 7. Installed Firefox, and text on webpages looks horrible. Here is a screenshot

I tried disabling hardware acceleration, no effect. I reinstalled the Arial font, which the web inspector says is being used, no effect. I have font smoothing turned off, and I am keeping it that way, I hate font smoothing

I know it can be fixed since I fixed it in the past without turning on font smoothing, I just can't remember how I did it.

Try setting gfx.content.azure.enabled to false.

Also, bug 760248 and other related bugs in Bugzilla might be of interest.

First, on having to edit the rule, do you mean because there are a lot of different fonts in use? I think you'll accumulate all the significant ones pretty quickly.

If you meant adding domains, simply don't list any domains. This garish rule demonstrates:

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
body {
  background-color: yellow !important;
}

Second, I think if you go with the flow of default settings, the fonts look fine. I've attached a screenshot for comparison with your original image.
