But it should land with proper "2" value for greater goods ASAP...

I have a feeling that the fonts have been improved *slightly* even in the latest (4.0.1) update...

Does anybody else have this issue?

When Hardware acceleration is enabled: Navigating through menu options is not smooth, getting lag and some little freezes but tabs performance is improved.
When Hardware acceleration is disabled: Navigating through menu options is smoth but getting some freezes on tabs closing or switching.

My computer spec is:

Phenom 965 @ 3,7
Nvidia gtx 460 1024mb MSI stock - driver version 270.61 "latest"
Mobo Gigabyte 770t usb3
4gb ram 667mhz 7-7-7-24

I have those perfomance issues only on firefox 4, on other browsers I don't have any performance issue.

Hope not to be the only one with this problem, happy wating for a reply.

That doesn't sound like a font rendering problem; you should probably post in the Support forum instead.

if you use a ati graphic card and have morphologic filtering on there is an issue if you dont use supersampling!so use supersampling and your problem might be fixed if it is that issue.its no garanty but there are good chance a lot of user problem related to small text will be fixed with this simple tweak ,not sure if it is a bug from ati or what but it has been like this since morphologic filtering was release.(or disable morphologic filtering)

gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.rendering_mode

by the way this setting should be left to -1 for w7 user using nightly 32 bit.if i set this to 1 (aa on by firefox way)it look very bad (command line bad)

Or you could just switch the rendering mode to 2 and get HA and GDI style rendering.
