Good. I like Waterfox and use it a lot. I just switch to FF if I start having Flash problems.

Here's how to get back to normal-

Go into about:config (type about:config in the location bar)
Find this string- layout.css.devPixelsPerPx
Change the value from -1.0 to 1.0
My FF 22.0 has this value set to 1.0 by default.

Just looked and mine are set at -1.0.

I'm not currently having any problems with FF...... except sometimes I get a Windows message saying it didn't close properly.

I changed mine to 1.0 as a test and changed it back.

What do you dislike about IE 10? They've finally given in on their cocky stance and generally render as good as webkit.

While it's really not a bad browser any more, the serious lack of plugins / addons makes it unusable for me. They've gotten a few more lately, but nothing like what's available in FF or Chrome.

Am using FF version 22.0 for Mac, no problem with text here.
Still using Adblocker & Flash, those are pretty much the only plug-ins I have.

The Firefox 25 release will have a major design overhaul. It is due out in October. Just hope I (and my favorite add-ons) will survive the changes. I started using Firefox in 2004 (version .09!) and have been rolling with the punches ever since. Wonder if version 25 will provide the final knockout blow to me.

I'm with you there. Been using it from the beginning, but it's become so buggy and unstable (especially with lots of tabs open), that I may have to just deal with the things I don't like about Chrome soon.
