Hi
I'm using a program called Mactype for smoothing out fonts on windows 7 and giving them the crispness and smoothness that exist on the OS X platform and I enjoy it everywhere on Windows except Firefox where I found out that the only way Mactype works in FF is by disabling hardware acceleration which is something that I need as well. Isn't there any workaround to have them both?

Thanks

Does Windows 7 not have Cleartype any more?

It does but it sucks so its presence is equal to its non-presence!

Oh! I thought disabling the hardware acceleration in FF options is the same as disabling the gfx.direct2d in about:config but it turns out they're not!
Anyway, thanks JayhawksRock!
