I'm pretty sure that's not mozilla. Don't know what's causing the bleeding.
Why are you "pretty sure?" Other people have had this problem:
You didn't set the mimetypes correctly to that of an image file when attaching
Ack! The files are gzipped TIF files.. Please make new screenshots in
PNG format, and attach them as ready-to-view in a browser.

What you are seeing is subpixel font rendering. Disable it in the
font-properties dialog config tool.
Note that if you are using a flat panel, and not using GNOME, this might
be bug 88259.
Indeed it is. The solution suggested in comment 37 of
bug 88259 worked. Thanks for the pointer!
