Font rendering in Firefox is hideous. The webfonts pkg does not change it and every suggestion I've found does not work.
Chromium looks fine.

I am trying to make use of the jails to run instances of a selenium/firefox app. To make Firefox run "headlessly", I am using XVFB (yes I do know that PhantomJS exists. This is testing a Firefox extension, so it really needs to be firefox) Currently, it works fine if I manually log...

At irregular intervals I have this problem of www/firefox (compiled from ports) closing unexpectedly. It happens across all four Firefox profiles. After it closes I can find a 'firefox.core' file in various directories. When I launch Firefox from the shells/fish shell and the process...
Here is an annoying bug in Firefox: when I click on the "close tab" button, sometimes Firefox crashes (or performs an unclean shutdown, because on restart it asks to restore windows and tabs). Has anyone else seen this bug?
