Ah yes I see what you're saying now. It shouldn't be much problem either. Hmm, I'll try on the next build then. Im a bit hesitant though because I remember there being problems when using automatic update for Beta's, causing bugs etc and I thought it would be best to have the user reinstall to try and avoid those situations.

Hi MrAlex,

I'm using Waterfox 4.0.1 and it's so good but maybe it has a problem with font rendering. Fonts in waterfox is displayed differently with other programs like Chrome in Win7 x64, it has no cleartype.

Have you tried doing this:

1) Type about:config in the address bar.
2) In the filter at the top type gfx.direct2d.disabled
3) Change it from false to true.

Does that help/solve your problem?

What did that exactly do? What is not correct with the screenshot? Not being facetious , just asking.

EDIT: So I looked it up and I know what it does. But I still don't see what is wrong with the picture above. Its suppose to be a fix for blurry text, right? I'm glad it got fixed for you though.

Yes it fixed 'blurry' text. Some people don't like it, some do. It depends on the person I suppose

I rather like the new text style
Combine it with changing system fonts to "Ubuntu" and win, win, win

Wow thanks!

I asked XD about it and he told me to check the thread for the fix..

Damn you XD! Could have told me it's on the last page! God damnit !
Now I have to convince myself to use Waterfox instead of Chrome

Edit: There is one thing I CAN'T live without: SmoothGestures from Chrome. I saw Firefox / Waterfox now has All-In-One Gestures but it's not compatible with FF5, WUTDO?
