Sunpixel rendering doesn't work for Firefox!

I’ve enabled subpixel rendering, but for some reason it doesn’t apply to Firefox and the text looks, well, crappy. I think it doesn’t work for GTK apps at all, just a gut feeling… regardless, anyone know how to fix this?

…anyone?

I know little about this subject, so can’t offer direct advice, but google searches on this topic yields considerable information.

I have yet to be convinced that its even required - a lot seems to be very subjective as well as being dependent on the display hardware involved.

Have a read of this discussion. Maybe it will be helpful.
