Here are the "gfx" preferences I found. By the way, how can I tell which of them is from which profile in windiff?

user_pref("gfx.canvas.azure.backends", "direct2d1.1,cairo,skia");
user_pref("gfx.content.azure.backends", "direct2d1.1,cairo,skia");
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.appVersion", "45.0.2");
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.deviceID", "0x0046");
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.driverVersion", "8.15.10.2622");
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.gfx.driver-init.direct3d11-angle", true);
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.gfx.driver-init.webgl-angle", true);
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.gfx.driver-init.webgl-angle-force-d3d11", false);
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.gfx.driver-init.webgl-angle-force-warp", false);
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.gfx.driver-init.webgl-angle-try-d3d11", true);
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.status.glcontext", 2);
user_pref("gfx.direct2d.disabled", true);
user_pref("gfx.direct3d.last_used_feature_level_idx", 1);
user_pref("gfx.driver-init.appVersion", "41.0.2");
user_pref("gfx.driver-init.deviceID", "0x0046");
user_pref("gfx.driver-init.driverVersion", "8.15.10.2622");
user_pref("gfx.driver-init.feature-d2d", false);
user_pref("gfx.driver-init.feature-d3d11", true);
user_pref("gfx.driver-init.status", 2);

Hello, I asked this almost a month ago, but here are the "gfx" preferences I found in windiff:

user_pref("gfx.canvas.azure.backends", "direct2d1.1,cairo,skia");
user_pref("gfx.content.azure.backends", "direct2d1.1,cairo,skia");
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.appVersion", "45.0.2");
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.deviceID", "0x0046");
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.driverVersion", "8.15.10.2622");
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.gfx.driver-init.direct3d11-angle", true);
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.gfx.driver-init.webgl-angle", true);
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.gfx.driver-init.webgl-angle-force-d3d11", false);
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.gfx.driver-init.webgl-angle-force-warp", false);
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.glcontext.gfx.driver-init.webgl-angle-try-d3d11", true);
user_pref("gfx.crash-guard.status.glcontext", 2);
user_pref("gfx.direct2d.disabled", true);
user_pref("gfx.direct3d.last_used_feature_level_idx", 1);
user_pref("gfx.driver-init.appVersion", "41.0.2");
user_pref("gfx.driver-init.deviceID", "0x0046");
user_pref("gfx.driver-init.driverVersion", "8.15.10.2622");
user_pref("gfx.driver-init.feature-d2d", false);
user_pref("gfx.driver-init.feature-d3d11", true);
user_pref("gfx.driver-init.status", 2);

How can I tell which of them are from which profile?

I apologize, I may have set you on the wrong track. My hope was that a diff program would make it obvious what settings were different between the two versions. Perhaps windiff isn't good for that purpose, other diff utilities exist, but maybe there is a quick solution to the problem.
Keep backups of everything of course. But, the settings we hope may alter the fonts are stored in prefs.js . Close Firefox, rename the prefs.js file to prefsbackup.js in the profile that has the font you don't like. Copy the prefs.js from the good profile into the bad profile, then start Firefox and see if it works as you like.
If that does not bring you the fonts you like, you would have to look for other possible differences between the computers such as windows cleartype settings or which windows update patches are installed.
To undo the experiment if necessary, rename prefs to prefs2 and copy prefsbackup back to prefs.

Thanks. I've gotten a different profile called WinMerge which tells me the differences between each part of the profiles and highlights what's changed. I think it will be able to help me check my preference differences very easily.
