It's buggy. Fonts jumbo(or teeny tiny) sized and blurry. I wish Firefox would leave well enough alone.

I noticed this while typing on City-Data, the text on one size of the text posting field gets blurry.

I gave up on FF 11 releases ago, even IE is more stable....

Sad considering how FF shook up the browser field and has now turned into a POS....

I just saw it again. I hit refresh and it went away. Weird.

Interesting. I feel the same way about IE, which is, in my opinion, the worst browser available.

In my experience Chrome > Firefox > morse code between server and user > IE > Opera


I do agree that ever since FF started throwing out new releases every 25 minutes they've gone downhill.

It's because Firefox now takes its DPI from your OS. I have Windows 7 set to 150%, so my Firefox display was huge!

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

I said IE is better than FF (which isn't saying much)....
