Browsers render fonts differently, unfortunately there's not a whole lot you can do about that aside from using a different font and seeing if you like its appearance on all browsers.

The type in the navbars in Firefox renders completely differently than in other browsers, lacking definition and oddly blotchy with grey areas in the fixed navbar. Here is one sample of the blotchy type in Firefox:

In this case I'm using the MUD child theme, but the same issue exists in other sites in the fixed navbar.

 

In the MUD theme, the font rendering in the vertical navigation is also blotchy only in firefox.

 

Anyone know a fix?

I have this same problem.  I've played around with it in 3 browswers, FireFox, Chrome, and IE (all browsers are fully updated).  I've noticed that it looks it's worst in Firefox, it looks a little better in Chrome, and it looks sensational in IE.  Go figure, right?  I always made IE out as a bad browser, but for me, in this case I think IE does a better job.
