I posted an identical issue when I updated to 6.0, but no one replied. I still far prefer the way IE9 renders them, so can anyone help me here? Chrome also renders them like Firefox.

I''ve updated to Fx6, and since then, the way it renders text is too light for my liking, I've looked around and read this, ... firefox-6/

I've tried changing the values and none of them seems right to me, it's bearable, but can someone explain to me what's going on here? Or better yet, can someone help me set Fx6 up so it renders web pages like IE9? From what I gather these new changes allow for Fx to set up its own options, and I just want it to follow my ClearType system settings. I'll even attach screenshots of IE here.

Various settings of gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.rendering_mode in about:config may help - settings are explained here
0 = default, 1 = aliased, 2 = GDI Classic, 3 = GDI Natural, 4 = Natural, 5 = Natural Symmetric

I seem to have forgotten all about this.

I just updated to Fx 8, along with rerunning the Cleartype Tuner, it seems to have fixed it!
