Image pixelation issues

Posted

I have been having this issue for some time now and I'm about at my wits end as to what to do. All image formats save for png appear pixelated on firefox and it isn't on any particular page but it's starting to infuriate me to the point where I just want to chuck my computer out a freaking window. I've tried the about config and messing with the dither thing I've tried fixing the zoom and I've even tried updating firefox but nothing is working! Even when I try and save an image to my comp the images quality is that of crap I tell you!!!!!! But other images saved before this frustration appeared are just fine and are of the quality that firefox had once presented them. There must have been something wrong with a firefox update since none of this bull started happening till I updated it sometime around the start of June. Someone please help me and tell me what the 8888ing hell is going on here!!!!!

I had the exact same problem you're having and I fixed it by installing the "nightly build" version of firefox 3.6.8. When you install it it'll be called Nakomora instead of firefox because it's a "work-in-progress" version and that's Mozilla's codename for firefox 3.6.x. Everything works the same - extensions, themes, etc. and the zoomed graphics will be smooth. When they come out with an official release version that works with zoomed graphics, just uninstall "Nakomora" and install the new version of firefox. Here's the download link: Download Firefox 3.6.8 nightly build here
