I can confirm that this bug is specific to the Fedora build and persists in the
most recent update (firefox-1.0.2-1.3.1). The latest installer build from
mozilla.org (Firefox 1.0.2 for Linux i686, English) does not have this bug and
continues to respect GDK_USE_XFT=0 to disable anti-aliased fonts.
Comment 2 Christopher Blizzard 2005-03-24 11:34:34 EST
I wonder if you can use MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=1 GDK_USE_XFT=0 to fall all the way
back to core fonts.
Comment 3 Christopher Blizzard 2005-03-24 11:36:13 EST
Actually, I should wontfix this because eventually we're going to remove bitmap
font support in the form of core x fonts.  (Disabling anti-aliasing via render
and pango is still an option, though.)
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2005-03-24 11:44:43 EST
This is not a bug. GDK_USE_XFT is not the right way to disable AA, it's a way to
enable the deprecated old font system which happens to not support AA. But the
new font system has a no-AA mode.

To disable AA, change the font configuration. Preferences->Fonts, or
