Windows 7: Blurry Font

Blurry Font

While on the net I keep getting blurry font! It doesn't happen until I've been surfing for a while.
Could this be the "FireFox" browser? If I highlight the font It clears up??
I am thinking the video card is going bad??
Any ideas?
Thanks

It might be the hardware acceleration option in Firefox.

In the Options control panel for Firefox, switch to the Advanced tab and then inside of the Advanced tab switch to the General tab. Disable "Use hardware acceleration when available".

If this doesn't make any noticeable change, then restart Firefox. If that doesn't do it, then this wasn't the answer.
