Some fonts look smoothed when anti-aliased.
Some fonts look blurry   when anti-aliased.

It would be nice to have a way for the user to control whether a particular
font is AA or not.

Controlling the strength of anti-aliasing would solve that problem better.
Especially on TFT-screens the current anti-aliasing looks disgusting.

in unix.js:

This pref controls anti-aliased bitmaps
// below a certian pixel size anti-aliased bitmat scaled fonts 
// produce poor results
pref("font.scale.aa_bitmap.enable", true);
pref("font.scale.aa_bitmap.always", false);

This URL describes how to enable TrueType fonts with anti-aliasing
