We need more information to identify the problem. 1. What Japanese font are you using? MS Gothic? Meiryo? Yu Gothic? Another third-party font? 2. What web pages do you see the problem? Could you post a sample URL or a test case and screenshots? 3. Is HWA enabled on your system? (Please go to about:support and copy the information.) 4. Do you see any difference if you set the "gfx.content.azure.backends" pref value to "direct2d1.1,cairo" via about:config?

Created attachment 8854761 [details] Screen Shot 2017-04-05 at 5.20.40 PM.png The left one is Firefox 53, and the right one is Chrome 57 I am not sure whether it is what the reporter said or not, but we do render Japanese text differently comparing with Chrome.
I have tried Amazon Japan website with different gfx.content.azure.backends and layers.acceleration.disalbed configuration and it doesn't affect text rendering. And I tested same website on macOS, the font looks fine, at least no difference comparing to Chrome. I suspect there is a regression somewhere makes us fail to enable ClearType on Windows platform.

Firefox 52 uses MS PGothic as the default sans-serif while Chrome uses Meiryo on Win7, Yu Gothic on Win 10. MS PGothic has bitmaps. If a CJK font has bitmaps, the bitmaps will always be used regardless of the ClearType setting. This is by design. Bug 548311 will fix the "problem".
Should this be wontfix or duped?
