    I've just find solution.
    It's needed to update cairo package from repo:
    'Index of /repositories/home:/Fisiu/openSUSE_11.1'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.1/)
    Firefox and Gnome have enabled subpixel.

    Can you confirm, whether it works for you also?

    I have a clean install (not an upgrade) of 11.1 x86_64, KDE 3.5. Using
    native LCD resolution at 1600x1200. With original cairo
    (1.8.0-5.1-x86_64)(64&32), was able to get a sharp desktop by adjusting
    font sizes, selecting "full" in KDE fonts, but not enabling sub-pixel
    hinting. At this stage FF3 CONTENT is nice size and fairly sharp, but
    the menu, URL entry/display area, dialogue boxes, etc., were very small,
    although perfectly formed. Yast is exactly the opposite: menu is
    correctly sized, content is small (like firefox3 menu)

    I added the above (Fisiu) repository, selected cairo (64&32) update in
    Yast, and then rebooted. I confirm the Fisiu repository version is
    installed: 1.8.0-19.1-x86_64.

    Neither Firefox 3 nor Yast changed one bit. GTK fonts are set to "use
    my kde fonts", I've enabled and disabled sub-pixel hinting (with
    reboots), nothing changes the unfavourable FF3 and Yast display
    situation.

    Surely there is a fix for this long outstanding problem!

    Another thing. IIR, there was a thread somewhere that indicated a
    replacement for Mozilla-xulrunner was needed to thoroughly effect the
    sub-pixel functionality with FF3. Can't find it now. But I'll try
    Googling and see what comes up.

    Moreover, at this time FF3 is a slug compared to Firefox 2 on 10.3 and
    11.0. FF2 on those versions is also lazer-sharp, with no strange
    display behaviour from Yast, either. So I don't know if I'll ever move
    to 11.1 if all this doesn't get sorted out. From what I hear, Mozilla
    has pretty well ignored Linux. Maybe Opera, or another distribution
    will be my next move. Because I won't ruin my eyes because OpenSuse and
    Mozilla can't get this straightened out.

    Hi.

    Take a look to this post: (read it all)
    'Firefox 3.0.1: Enable Using Subpixel Hunting! - openSUSE Forums'
    (http://tinyurl.com/5odoco)
    Good luck

    Luis

    EDIT. Works perfectly on OS 11.1 GNOME and KDE4... See Post Nr. 30 for
    the repo.
