I am having the same issues as the person in this thread, but unlike their situation, firefox has not fixed itself out of nowhere. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1104044

Everything in the firefox browser looks like it was stretched it out in MSPaint, while my actual OS interface and every other app/software UI looks fine. I have tried simply restarting my computer, as well as every solution in the linked thread, as well as refreshing firefox, and uninstalling/reinstalling, which only served to mess up my shortcuts on the home page. To be clear:

  • Hardware acceleration is turned OFF, as suggested in any thread I've found where a resolution issue is addressed.
  • setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1.25 specifically makes it almost legible. Almost. It's still incredibly grainy. Any higher even a small portion of a webpage takes up a ridiculous portion of my screen, rendering it just as unusable.
  • In messing around in config, I found that setting gfx.color_management.rendering_intent to 5 helped, in so far as it sharpened things up a little, but it did not FIX the issue. Any value above 5 seems to have zero effect or change.
  • Absolutely EVERYTHING else except firefox looks absolutely fine. It is ONLY firefox that is having this issue of all the applications/interfaces on my computer.
  • Everything in firefox is affected- images, text, the tabs and address bar, bookmarks bar, absolutely everything.

Have you tried changing "Override high DPI scaling behavior" in the shortcut properties?
