    I also use hintslight.

    are rgba and rgb also options for value_smoothing and smooth_setting?

    Open Fire Fox --> Edit --> Preferences --> Content --> Default font

    free Sans / 16 works for me but your mileage may vary

    Great posts, thank you both, guys
    I have been looking to get rid of those crappy, blurry, eye-straining Firefox fonts for months.
    Now webpages text is crystal clear.

    What works (great!) for me is:

    smoothing = greyscale
    hinting = medium

    and in FF preferences I have set:

    Proportional: Sans Serif
    Serif: DejaVu Serif
    Sans-serif: DejaVu Sans
    Monospace: DejaVu Sans Mono
    Also unticked "Allow pages to use their own fonts..."

    Re: Firefox 3.5 not following gnome font settings

    My settings are following

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
    <fontconfig>
    <match target="font" >
    <edit mode="assign" name="rgba" >
    <const>rgb</const>
    </edit>
    </match>
    <match target="font" >
    <edit mode="assign" name="hinting" >
    <bool>true</bool>
    </edit>
    </match>
    <match target="font" >
    <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle" >
    <const>hintfull</const>
    </edit>
    </match>
    <match target="font" >
    <edit mode="assign" name="antialias" >
    <bool>false</bool>
    </edit>
    </match>
    </fontconfig>

    Slick fonts.

    Thanks for info!

    Re: Firefox 3.5 not following gnome font settings

    Using a .fonts.conf in the home directory doesn't seem to work for Firefox 3.6. under Hardy 32bit. (Ubuntuzilla install) Is there any way to get font smoothing working here?

    it seems that this trick doesn't seem to work for firefox3.6...

    don't know what else to suggest.

    don't know what the deal is with the fonts really myself, since ff3.6 looks just fine both on my intrepid and my karmic machines, so i didn't have to do anything...

    Agree, I am unable to set correct fonts for firefox 3.6 either. Probably some interesting bug again Over to Chromium / 3.7

    Could it be related to the following?

    Re: Firefox 3.5 not following gnome font settings

    The .fonts.conf suggestion in this thread works for Firefox 3.5, but on both my Ubuntu systems it has no effect on Firefox 3.6. I'm running 9.10 32 bit with Ubuntuzilla on one system and 9.10 64 bit on the other, trying both the daily builds and downloading from the Mozilla website.

    I also tried the suggestions in this thread, but didn't have any luck.
