Blurry font on Firefox, Opera

in flag

I need to fix blurry font only on Firefox. I changed fonts settings using:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings hinting full
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings antialiasing none

Fonts are ok everywhere else except for Firefox, Opera:

"*blurry*" - do you mean antialiasing?

@Nmath yes, I need sharp letters, without antyaliasing (like in left picture on link below):

This probably doesn't have anything to do with Ubuntu settings or configs but is probably a setting in Firefox. Have you searched Firefox support/forums?

Try using full hinting in Firefox.

Firefox doesn't use the system font hinting settings, so you have to enable it manually...

  1. Remove existing link for 10-hinting-slight.conf -> ../conf.avail/10-hinting-slight.conf...

    sudo rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/10-hinting-*.conf
  2. Add new link for 10-hinting-full.conf -> /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-hinting-full.conf...

    sudo ln -sv /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-hinting-full.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/
  3. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect. (Loging-out and loging-back-in may also be sufficient).

Seems to be the same - no changes :-( Still I can see antialiasing on Firefox and Opera

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
