I got my MacBook yesterday and am transitioning from a PC. The font smoothing on the Mac is really difficult for me to look at, and I've had a lot of painful eyestrain from it. I did dicker around with the display preferences, and turned the LCD smoothing option on and off, but while I noticed a difference, it didn't help. Wish I had paid more attention to the reviews I read when researching laptops - this seems to be a common complaint, but I had no idea how literally painful it would be. (Incidentally, photos are very clear, so there's nothing wrong with my display.) The only thing I've found that helps is to zoom the text (or page) to 110%. I use Firefox and don't like having to click on the + (or use the Mac's zoom function) every single time I navigate to a new webpage, so I downloaded the NoSquint add-on. However, in spite of setting this to use 110% as the default, it does not use it when I change pages, unless I click on the % showing on the lower right corner of the screen, bringing up the add-on screen all over again. (I'm not even sure this add-on is meant to be used with the latest version of Firefox.) This is no better than just clicking Firefox's + button. Is there some way I can set by default for 110% and keep it there, period? Please make your answer very clear as I'm an old lady and have been using PCs since CP/M days, so my neural pathways are a bit overwhelmed making new connections right now as I try to make sense of yet another OS.
