I've noticed FF to be faster than previous versions. Especially at js heavy sites.

City-Data renders perfectly fine for me on FF, Chrome, IE 9 (Windows 7) and IE 10 (Windows 8). The colors seem to be a little different in Chrome than the others (the blue is a bit off). I wonder if Chrome is picking up the wrong color management profile. I should look into that... Chrome is my preferred browser.

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
There's multiple complaints similar to mine on the FF help board. The fonts I have under control (somewhat) but the fuzzy icons and the general unclearness (is that a word?) is a pain. I'm wondering if it's because my screen is Hi-Def.

But, at least two people here (myself included) have verified that CD renders fine in IE (9 and 10). If you look at the image Tek posted, it looks like there is a problem with the stylesheet. That's a problem specific to his computer.

I never said Tek was a dummy.
It's not just CD. It's any page I go to.

And sometimes I am a dummy.

It's got an Intel HD Graphics 3000 card. I'm not a computer guy but I guess that means it's a HD display.

Just because the video card might be able of HD doesn't mean the display is.....

I won't use chrome because they stubbornly refuse to include a sidebar for bookmarks for mostly selfish reasons... they take up 50% of the market now though so clearly most people don't care.

I'm using FF 22 since IE freezes after one or two clicks and attempts at 'cleaning' the files didn't do much, which was the only 'help' I could get. IE has been installed and uninstalled and reinstalled several times and it didn't really fix much. I STILL like IE better and especially that it does not mess with favorites. They stay the same order you put them in. FF alphabatised the ones I had, then the new ones are just trailing. I want all of them the order I loaded them. And I can't open more than two windows and FF goes very slow and then freezes.

When I can afford it I'd like a tech to look at my computer and see if there are settings off somewhere, but every since IE 9 messed up, it hasn't run right and FF is starting to show the same problems.

I also LIKED the bar at the bottom where I could set and change the magnification of the screen and miss it very much. If there is a way to get IE to work its still what I want. I'd have to add the additional bookmarks to the end of the favorites manually some way, I suppose.

Can certain people not get it in their head that some of us do NOT like built in maintenance and the like and would like a browser which did what a browser is supposed to do without messing with favorites or screen size and letting the user pick that??????

What are those selfish reasons?
