Pardon the ignorant question but I couldn't find what you were talking about on google. What texture issue is there?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Has to do with using the Hardware Acceleration in FF4, and the blurry text it gives. Google "font rendering firefox hardware acceleration" or similar and you'll find plenty on it.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

I've been using Minefield 64 bit for ages and I think it's great. Occasional nightly updates have rendered it unusable at times, albeit briefly. It's now on 4.0b13pre.
Consequently I have the FF RC 32 bit installed plus Lunascape6. This last one is a recent discovery and well worth looking at.
Nonetheless my default is Minefield. It's been going through a good patch with no glitchy builds coming down for some time.
Don't know whether I'm imagining it but it also seems slicker and more solid than the 32 bit version.
