RE: «I have subpixel smoothing selected and in Details I have 96 dpi resolution, subpixel smoothing and full hinting, subpixel order RGB.
With "None" and "slight" hinting the fonts are made slightly bigger, but with "medium" and "full" they are normal, but they aren't blurred.»

Those who see the bug can see it better with:
-- NO subpixel/RGB smoothing!
-- grayscale medium or full hinting (aka best contrast).

If the bug shows, the fonts are blurred in Firefox 3.5, but not in other

It's extremely sad that such a major application as firefox-3.5 won't be
fixed before the release, no matter where the bug is.

I'm also surprised that not everybody can see this bug for firefox-3.5
on the Ubuntu or Xubuntu LiveCD, by just selecting medium/full hinting,
grayscale-only, then fire Firefox and other GTK (and non-GTK) apps!
