That is a pretty obscure case with a quite minor effect.

From what I can see, this only affects people who disable CT and it is only affecting the reverse highlighting by failing to bold. It is not making the font more blurry. Look closely at the not reversed and reversed fonts. They are identical only in 3.6 it is bolded.

So it fails to bold under some obscure circumstance for CT-OFF folks. I guess if you are CT-OFF user and that is a big deal, of course you can go back to 3.6, but it seems extremely minor to me.

HW-OFF, CT-ON (most people use CT I believe) renders the same when I tested, but it is possible I missed some obscure case. Borat?
You're absolutely right. I disabled HA (and the AATuning Add-On) and it's back to looking good. I'm with Armin, though, on now having one less reason to be using FF4 with HA disabled, being that it's one of the new, key features.

I mean seemingly random, not really random. This page, Questions to the Band - A P O C A L Y P T I C A , was everytime very colorful and fringing upon load. When scrolling, the situation changed.

Lateral to the primary discussion, this sounds a (very little) bit like what happens when I change font smoothing settings while other windows are opened and the smoothing setting change is not represented in a particular window until the window is minimized/re-maximized or scrolled off screen. Sometimes if the window/menu is partially scrolled only the part that left the screen shows the change. Attached pic shows example of change partway through the writing of this post.
