Do you have anything like noscript installed at all? Latest flash installed?

So with regards to my previous post with the obvious difference between HW Accel ON/OFF:
https://www.sevenforums.com/1306210-post73.html

I installed every windows update, including optional ones.
Installed the latest NVidia WHQL drivers. (266.58).
I ran the DXupdater, but I was already up to date.
re-ran cleartype tuner.

So everything fully up to date. Several installs and reboots later.

NO CHANGE. FF still has fat fonts with HW accel on.

Could someone who claims sharp everywhere goto the same page I posted and do a screen cap? Is this a case of different rendering, or just a case of people who don't mine the new rendering from DirectWrite?

Guys for those having blurry issues under win 7 is essential that you unselect this option:



Control panel -> system and security -> system -> advanced configuration

Thanks. I guess that explains why some don't see an issue,they are running zoomed in a few levels. Same as what Smarteyeyeball indicated.

Could someone who doesn't have zoom on try it. When you zoom that much you get much bigger fonts, made with much more pixels.

Also could you include where it says "CATEGORY" as that highlights the kerning (spacing) differences.
