Created attachment 611343 [details] Firefox 14, built in pdf reader User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:14.0) Gecko/20120401 Firefox/14.0a1 Build ID: 20120401192420 Steps to reproduce: On the latest nightly build that I had downloaded from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/tinderbox-builds/mozilla-central-win32/1333333460/ I tried to read a pdf file from my universities website. Actual results: When I opened the pdf file in a new tab, I found the font rendering was very ugly (see uploaded picture). This does not happen in chrome of with the SumatraPDF plugin. The pdf is located here: http://www.cs.utoronto.ca/~tff/165/lectures/ch6.pdf Expected results: It should have rendered the font normally without all the jagged edges.

Created attachment 612005 [details] PDF Viewer vs Evince on Ubuntu 10.10 64 bits I have attached a comparison between PDF Viewer 0.2.414 and Evince on Ubuntu 10.10 64 bits and indeed fonts are poorly rendered on PDF Viewer
The problem seems to be fixed in this pdf but I have found another one where the text is not displayed properly. You need a university account to access the file so I have just uploaded it instead. http://ompldr.org/vZjNrdw
the new PDF was scanned. this is an anti-aliasing problem. duplicate of bug 738648
