How to make the fonts in Firefox sharper so there more like the fonts in Google Chrome?

I'm currently in the process of moving from Google Chrome to Firefox, and I noticed that the fonts in Firefox are allot more smoother then what they are in Google Chrome, is there anyway to make the Firefox fonts look as sharp as what the fonts are in Google Chrome?

This article has some suggestions for fixing bad-looking fonts: '''[[Fonts look blurry]]'''
There are also some improvements coming in Firefox 7, which is currently available for testing on the [http://www.firefox.com/channel Aurora channel]. (It will be released to the beta channel in a few days, and will become the new stable release six weeks from now.)
If you're interested in the technical details, [https://blog.mozilla.com/nattokirai/2011/08/11/directwrite-text-rendering-in-firefox-6/ this article] has some in-depth information and some more preferences you can tweak.

  • How to make Adobe Acrobat Pro's (CS6) toolsets work more like previous versions. It is very inconvenient now to put it mildly, was much better in CS3.

    In CS6, every time I need to preflight, edit, export images from Acrobat Pro I have to try and build a new toolset. The little icons that appear at the top are generally meaningless, as I don't use this every day. Is there a way to make it behave more like previous versions - say CS3?

    Why do you have to build a new toolset? Why not, for instance, just click the Preflight button?

  • All photos in portrait format are displayed blurred in the preview mode "fill" of the library. In all other modes e.g. "fit"or "1:2" the photos are sharp. How can I change this, so that the photos are still sharp when displaying them in the mode "fill"?

    All photos in portrait format are displayed blurred in the preview mode "fill" of the library. In all other modes e.g. "fit"or "1:2" the photos are sharp. How can I change this, so that the photos are still sharp when displaying them in the mode "fill"? My Lightroom release is 5.7.1.
    Thanking you in anticipation!

    I'd like to get all these '-1 suffix' files together with their associated Develop adjustments into one folder (if they aren't already) so I can see them in Grid view in the Library module, which I use as my basic starting point for everything else at this early stage of my Lightroom 'career'.
    To see what folder these are stored in, right-click on a photo and select "Go to Folder in Library".
    Advice: if you are going to use Lightroom effectively, you probably want to stop using folders as your method to create a grouping of photos that are already in Lightroom; there are plenty of built-in tools, such as keywords, collections, color labels, etc.
    I don't understand why the search on the entire catalog picked up apparently the same two file versions but also got the Develop adjustments when going to the relevant Folder didn't show the adjustment black squares against each image in Grid view nor were they there when the images were opened in the Develop module.  Perhaps if I understood this, I'd be a bit more confident of moving forward myself.
    These are most likely different versions of the same photo, in different folders. Lightroom stores the edits in its own catalog, and so it knows that one folder's photos have edits, and the other folder's photos do not have edits. Please understand that Lightroom is a database, it knows where the photos are at the time you import them (or add them to the catalog by synchronize), and then if you move things around in your operating system, Lightroom does not know anything about that and problems begin. Thus the advice to organize using Lightroom tools and methods and not operating system tools and methods.

    Hi,
    I developed a web application using HTML5-Offline Application Cache mechanism. Inspite of deleting the cache as mentioned in the above steps, Firefox still maintains a copy of the page in it's cache. Also, a serious bug is, even though we delete all temp files used by Firefox, and open the previously cached page, it displays it correctly, but upon refreshing/reloading it again shows the previous version of the page maintained in the cache.

    We have had this issue many, many times before including on the latest 3.6 rev. It appears that when the applicationCache has an update triggered by a new manifest file, the browser may still use only its local network cache to check for updates to the files in the manifest, instead of forcing an HTTP request and revalidating both the browser cache and the applicationCache versions of the cached file (seems there is more than one). I have to assume this is a browser bug, as one should not have to frig with server Cache-Control headers and such to get this to work as expected (and even then it still doesn't sometimes).
    The only thing that seems to fix the problem is setting network.http.use-cache to false (default is true) in about:config . This helps my case because we only ever run offline (applicationCache driven) apps in the affected browser (our managed mobile apps platform), but it will otherwise slow down your browser experience considerably.

    I am interpreting that to say that the detail panel is missing your develop module. If that is the case, right-click on one of the other panel headings and make sure there is a checkmark for detail.

    A new album purchase downloaded each song as an individual album, each with its own album cover. How do I consolidate all songs under just one album cover like the rest of my library? How did this happen?

    Generally all you need to do is fill in an appropriate Album Artist. For more details see my article on Grouping Tracks Into Albums, in particular the topic One album, too many covers.
    BTW, are you really still using Windows 2000?

    Hi! I have a problem with the adjustment brush some are not there anymore like soften skin, how i can fix that?

    Hi dear,
    it's funny, real funny.
    I think the programmes have diffrent sound system from the normal calls system.
    All you need to do is to turn the sound up from the bottom in the phone side in the time you're making or recieving the call.
    you'll hear the sound.
    I hope that would help.
    All the best

  • How to list Playlist and ALL songs individually (not by album) like the older versions of iTune

    Previous versions allowed you to keep the list of Playlists on the left and List all the songs individually on the right. Now if you're building a new playlist, it puts it on the right and lists the songs by albums instead of alphabetically by each song name. I can't seem to find it in the menus...is this view no longer available?

    The main differences between iTunes 11 and earlier versions are the loss of coverflow and ability to have multiple windows open.
    In Windows, you can restore much of the look & feel of iTunes 10.7 with these shortcuts:
    ALT to temporarily display the menu bar
    CTRL+B to show or hide the menu bar
    CTRL+S to show or hide the sidebar
    CTRL+/ to show or hide the status bar (won't hide for me on Win XP)
    Click the magnifying glass top right and untick Search Entire Library to restore the old search behaviour
    Use View > Hide <Media Kind> in the cloud or Edit > Preferences > Store and untick Show iTunes in the cloud purchases to hide the cloud items. The second method eliminates the cloud status column (and may let iTunes start up more quickly)
    If you don't like having different coloured background & text in theAlbum (Grid) view use Edit > Preferences > General and untick Use custom colours for open albums, movies, etc.
    With iTunes 11.0.3 and later you can enable artwork in the Songs view from View > Show View Options (CTRL+J) making it more like the old Album List view
    View > Show View Options (CTRL+J) also contains options to change the sorting of grid based views
    Select the Songs view and enable the side bar (CTRL+S) and you should find iTunes a little more familiar...

  • When trying to upload a photo to Facebook Firefox 5 hangs. I have no problem with Google Chrome

    When I try to upload a photo to Facebook, Firefox 5 hangs. I have downloaded and used Google Chrome and it uploads in seconds. Thanks for any help.

    I have used the address bar frequently since the problem began. I just checked my History record, it is blank and has no entries since I cleared it several days ago. (Had a rouge search engine that I accidentally downloaded when I was trying to get Firefox 3. I finally got rid of all traces and in the process cleared the history. But there should be at least 2 or 3 days of history and my bookmarks are ok! Auto complete is set to use both.

    A basic MBA will be more than adequate.  Take into consideration that storage may be a long term issue unless you are not averse to traveling with an external HDD.
