Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0b2) Gecko/20100720 Firefox/4.0b2 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0b2) Gecko/20100720 Firefox/4.0b2 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

The rendering of some fonts (see in the attached bitmap - the white on red background) is clearly not readable - compared to both 4.0b1 and 3.6.8(which I have on the same machine and compared a minute later on the same page) - see the font that's NOT in the title of the two red text boxes.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to www.ynet.co.il (sorry, in Hebrew)
2. 
3.
Actual Results:  
Some Hebrew fonts are now rendered less clearly

Expected Results:  
Should rendered as clearly as in previous versions - inc 4.0b1.

Yes - looks the same (what's the difference? PNG vs. BMP?)

Are you still experiencing this issue with the latest version of Firefox 5? Does the issue occur with the latest nightly? http://nightly.mozilla.org/
