Improve font rendering in Firefox

If fonts in Firefox look uglier than in Chrome then probably LCD Filtering is not enabled in fontconfig.

In Gentoo enable LCD filtering like so:
eselect fontconfig enable 11-lcdfilter-default.conf
eselect fontconfig list
And make sure the other LCD filtering options are disabled. In my setup I get good fonts with:
