Firefox shows blurry images (and none of the best-known solutions work)

No matter
* if I run Firefox under safe mode (plugins disabled),
* if I update my graphics drivers,
* or if I disable Harware Rendering under Advanced Options,
Firefox keeps showing blurry images.
Here is a comparison screenshot between Firefox (left) and Opera (right) rendering the same image:

This has been happening for a long time, even through several Firefox updates. None of the solutions I've found on the web (listed above) will fix this problem.
The image blur is tiring on the eyes, not being able to see images correctly is so annoying, and I hope someone can help me fix this issue.

Changing Firefox's zoom behavior so you can enlarge just the text but not the images can lead to site layouts breaking. If you want to take a look:
View menu > Zoom > ''check'' Zoom Text Only
(If you do not normally display the classic menu bar, tap the Alt key to display it temporarily.)
Firefox 22 was the first to tie your Firefox content zoom level to your Windows DPI setting. You can break the connection and set Firefox to use 100% resolution (the classic 96dpi resolution) if you like. Here's how:
(1) In a new tab, type or paste '''about:config''' in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.
(2) In the filter box, type or paste '''pix''' and pause while the list is filtered
(3) Double-click '''layout.css.devPixelsPerPx''' and change its value to '''1.0''' for Firefox 21-sized fonts.
This will return the content to normal, but the toolbars may appear a bit smaller than your Windows standard for UI (100%/105%). There is an extension to enlarge fonts in that area: [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/theme-font-size-changer/ Theme Font & Size Changer].
Can you get it to work the way you want?

  • FF Less stable than IE. Numerous crashes, the latest quirk is that it will open a new window with a website already working on and NONE of the iterations of FF work. Have to reboot computer because can't even exit FF. Fix it or on to Chrome.

    FF Less stable than IE. Numerous crashes, the latest quirk is that it will open a new window with a website already working on and NONE of the iterations of FF work. Have to reboot computer because can't even exit FF. Fix it or on to Chrome.

    '''''"a new FF iteration"'''''
    No such thing. All Firefox windows and tabs run in a single '''firefox.exe''' process, unlike IE which has a separate process for each window, or Chrome which opens a new process for each tab.
    As far as the Firefox SafeMode, you can't open it when Firefox is running ''(unless you open a separate Profile purposely)'', if you try all you will get is another window in the "regular mode".
    You're not going to be able to discover the cause of your problem if you're unwilling to follow established troubleshooting procedures, regardless of how intermittent the fault occurs. I wouldn't be surprised of you have an add-on installed which is causing that problem.
    Another course of action would be to create a new Profile, which is like starting from scratch with a completely new Firefox installation. <br />

  • IPod frozen and none of the "5 r's" work

    Please help.
    I was listening to my ipod in my speakers and went to change the song when it just froze on me. I tried to reset it right away by holding the menu button. But now it is stuck on the main menu and even the back-light is on. I tried all five of the "r's" and none of them work. The computer won't recognize the iPod at all.
    Please help

  • Since iOS8 my iphone 3GS no longer synchronises with my two ipads and my laptop.  none of the many suggested solutions work.  i rely on my phone to work as it did before for  medical reasons.  i did not ask for this to happen.  why must i pay?

    as my iphone used to remind me when to take my medicine wherever i was i could trust apple and its products for use.  i can no longer do this and mourn the loss of freedom of movement i had prior to iOS8.  i have spent days and days following advice and suggested remedies without success.  i see no other solutions than buying a phone that will sync with iOS8.  but why should i pay to repair damage to the system i have relied upon done by someone else?  is it in fact legat for anyone to do this to me, or anyone else?

    I cannot check any recorded version of any telephone call. You are referring to me as if I am an Apple employee. That could not be further than the truth. If you took the time to read any part of where you register for the forum, this is a user to user forum. I am a user just like yourself.
    You made the statement that you use your phone to create a reminder to take medication. A 3GS phone is incapable of running iOS8, so that has nothing to do with it. I asked if you have iOS8 on your iPads, which you fail to identify, and avoid the answer. And where does the laptop fit into this, since it does not use iOS8.
    If you were to identify the problem you are alleging, then someone might be interested in helping. You do not indicate your issue except to say about an inability to synchronize between devices. And I do not appreciate your assessment of my character.
    Let me be precise: You are not addressing Apple, no one can determine what has happened to your devices since you do not describe the issues, and it is not up to users to determine responsibility. I suggest you contact Apple again, as you state you have done, and take up the issue with them.
    I'm through.

  • Disabled ipod and none of the suggested fixes are working!

    My daughter entered her password wrong too many times and her ipod is now disabled.  I've tried all the suggested fixes on the support page and nothing is working.  When I try to restore it thru itunes it says it can't because it is locked with a password.  I tried to erase it thru icloud, but the ipod is offline and I don't know how to get it online.  I tried to soft reset, I tried to hard reset. Nothing! Help!

    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.
    iOS: Forgot passcode or device disabled
    If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.                        
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings        
    For how to restore:                                                             
    iTunes: Restoring iOS software
    To restore from backup see:
    iOS: Back up and restore your iOS device with iCloud or iTunes       
    If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
    You can redownload most iTunes purchases by:                         
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store        
    If problem what happens or does not happen and when in the instructions? When you successfully get the iPod in recovery mode and connect to computer iTunes should say it found an iPod in recovery mode.

  • Firefox profile missing message when trying to open Firefox...so, how do I rebuild my Firefox Profile on an iMac? None of the existing responses/solutions work!

    OSX Mavericks...After I download Firefox it will not open. Message box appears indicating my profile is missing or cannot be found. All existing solutions speak to 'Open Profile Manager'...there is no such program on a Mac. Mozilla expert/technician needed ASAP. Please explain in clear and plain language how I get Firefox back.

    # Click the Finder icon in the dock.
    # On the menu bar, click the ''Go'' menu, hold down the '''option''' or '''alt''' key and select ''Library''. A window will open containing your Library folder.
    # Open the "Application Support" folder, then open the "Firefox" folder.
    # Rename the ''profiles.ini'' file to ''profiles.ini-old''
    # The next time you start Firefox, it should start with a brand new profile. See the following article for directions on recovering data from your old profile.
    #* [[Recovering important data from an old profile]]
    ''Neil1955 wrote:''
    The next section 'For additional details, see "Use the Profile Manager to create and remove Firefox profiles does not refer to Macs...it speaks to 32-bit and 64-bit windows.

  • I am missing my bookmarks and none of the things you suggest work because I cannot even find my task manager or processes options!

    My bookmarks just disappeared off my toolbar. I'm not sure why. When I do things Firefox suggests such as going to task manager and then processes, I am unable to even find "task manager" on my toolbar! Please give me the correct, specific directions for fixing this! I do not have a PhD in computers!

    You can open the Task Manager via Ctrl+Alt+Del

  • HT4623 After updating my software on my iPhone 4s; my phone is not recognized by iTunes and none of the support suggestions have worked.  I am not satisfied with my apple support

    After updating to the latest software, my iPhone 4s and iPad 2 are not recognized by iTunes.  I have attempted all of the suggusted material on Apple support.  I am not satisfied as these items are needed daily.

    Connect the device to the computer.
    Quit iTunes if it launches.
    Click the Start menu, right-click on Computer, and choose Properties.
    In the upper-left corner, click Device Manager. The Device Manager window should open.
    Click the plus icon (or disclosure triangle () for Windows 7) next to Universal Serial Bus controllers to expand this selection.
    Right click on apple mobile device USB Driver and update it to latest version.
    This worked for me..

  • Since the FF8 update, all bookmarks were lost and none of the recommended methods for restoring lost bookmarks work; I always get "Unable to process to backup file" even though the backup .json files still exist

    Since a FF8 update, all bookmarks were lost and none of the recommended restore methods work, even though I have been able to find the backup ".json" files; I continually get "Unable to process the backup file" for all methods of importing or restoring the bookmarks from the .json files. As others note, I can also no longer add any new bookmarks to my now empty bookmarks tab. My profile has not changed, so that's not the problem. This is really a pain.

    Did you try to delete the file places.sqlite to make Firefox rebuild the places.sqlite database file from a JSON backup?
    *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_process_the_backup_file_-_Firefox
    A possible cause is a problem with the file places.sqlite that stores the bookmarks and the history.

  • I have a white/grey screen and none of the suggested operations have helped, what should I do?

    I have a white/grey screen and none of the suggested options have worked - I have tried all the suggestions on Apple support

    Ok, I've had this problem before and contacted Applecare support and they told me that it was an issue with the RAM inside the Mac or something like that. They told me to refresh the ram, and it fixed the problem so that's what I'd recommend.  Here's how to do it.
    Hit Power button, then press and hold Command + R + Option + P at the same time.
    This resets the residual ram that is causing the start up to hang.
    Try that, I hope it works for you.

  • In Firefox 36.0.1, can I show ONLY copy and paste in the navigation toolbar without showing cut?

    In Firefox 36.0.1, can I show ONLY copy and paste in the navigation toolbar without showing cut?

    Do you only want this to happen if you right-click in the location/address bar?
    You can ddd code to the <b>userChrome.css</b> file below the default @namespace line.
    *http://kb.mozillazine.org/userChrome.css

    The customization files userChrome.css (user interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the <b>chrome</b> folder in the Firefox profile folder.

    *Create the chrome folder (lowercase) in the <xxxxxxxx>.default profile folder if this folder doesn't exist
    *Use a plain text editor like Notepad to create a (new) userChrome.css file in the chrome folder (file name is case sensitive)
    *Paste the code in the userChrome.css file in the editor window
    *Make sure that the userChrome.css file starts with the default @namespace line
    *Make sure that you select "All files" and not "Text files" when you save the file via "Save file as" in the text editor as userChrome.css.<br>Otherwise Windows may add a hidden .txt file extension and you end up with a not working userChrome.css.txt file

  • My Firefox crashes every time I open it and none of the steps in the database solve the problem. My crash signature is PaintFrame(nsIRenderingContext*, nsIFrame*, nsRegion const&, unsigned int, unsigned int)

    I tried opening it in safe mode and none of the other help tips in the database on firefox crashes when I open it apply to me. I also ran a couple of virus programs to check for any infections and found nothing. I had been having issues with java previous to firefox beginning to crash. So I attempted to uninstall java from my computer but it did not help.
    My crash signature is PaintFrame(nsIRenderingContext*, nsIFrame*, nsRegion const&, unsigned int, unsigned int) and a search of this term on Mozilla Support pulled up no results.
    I'm not terribly knowledgeable with programming so any suggestions would help!

    I read online about a "clean reinstall" of firefox which seems to have worked! They should include direction on this on their page: https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Firefox+crashes+when+you+open+it
