Created attachment 8454951 [details] inspector-retina-blurry-tooltip.png User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.10; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/31.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20140710141843 Steps to reproduce: Open inspector and inspect an element on a OS X retina device like macbook pro Actual results: tooltip text is readable but blurry (over aliased). see attached screenshot of text issue. Expected results: tooltip text should be sharp
I can't reproduce this. Can you check if you can reproduce this if you restart with add-ons disabled (option in the help menu)? And do you perhaps have a theme installed/enabled?

I confirmed it was the silver2 theme interacting with the tooltip. Marking as resolved invalid.

Because silver2 is a "light-weight theme", it's still Firefox's responsibility to make the text in its tooltips look good in that case, so I'm reopening this. The issue is that for lightweight themes with a certain background/foreground color, we set a bright text shadow. That's what you're seeing here. Because the text shadow doesn't work well in this case, the inspector's CSS should include a line or two to disable it in such cases. Theme: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/silver2/

Summary: Inspector tooltip text is blurry on OS X retina monitor → Inspector tooltip text has unwanted text-shadow with certain light-weight themes
I see your point. Other light-weight themes may also show the blurring from the shadow and users will most likely see it as a Firefox bug.
