When zooming in and then zooming out to the initial zoom level some text can be
shown blury. It could seem like the zoom level does not become the same, when it would be expected to be shown similarly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Reproducible with the following steps on flickr:
* Go to the URL: http://flickr.com/photos/jk10976/2672587533/
* Notice the buttons "Add Note", "Blog this" appears fine.
* ctrl+mouse wheel zoom in three levels, then zoom out three levels.
* The text "Add Note", "Blog this" appers blury.
Actual Results:  
Blury Text on the buttons "Add Note", etc. in the page.

Expected Results:  
It would be expected that the text on the buttons would be shown crisp. As they are shown when loading the page without zooming.

Should be fairly easy to reproduce.

Where do you see "Add Note" and "Blog this"?  I can't find them, even after logging into flickr.

Sorry, you have to be logged in on flickr to see those buttons.

This is how it looks per default in Opera.

I think it looked pretty much like that in Firefox also by default without zooming.

After zooming in and the zooming out, it would look something like the following screen shot.

This is speculation, but it looks like when zooming back to 1, you would get zoom level = 1.01 or something like that. That it is not 1, but only approximately 1.

This shows the anti-aliasing problem of the "blog this" button in Firefox.

It could be that the settings is messed up somehow in Firefox. Now I get that 
anti aliasing problem by default without doing the zooming first.

Does this help to reproduce?
