    It's a moderately well known issue/notabug/feature of gtk4 font rendering (https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/-/issues/3787)

    There is a workaround (https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/-...7#note_1280247) and Fedora may include it F36 (https://pagure.io/fedora-workstation/issue/295)
    The gitlab thread you posted on blurry fonts was updated just 3 hours ago with a potential fix, here's hoping.

      Yesterday's update addressed a different issue, and seems to have disappeared -- probably moved to a more appropriate thread.
      The problem blurring all text in GTK4 remains.
      A developer put in a lot of work to fix this a year ago, and apparently created a patch that solves the problem, but the maintainer shot the patch down:
      https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/-..._requests/3393
      It's a bizarre situation, and I'm at a loss why those in power at GNOME show so little interest in fixing such a harmful regression, helping others to fix it, or even _allowing_ others to fix it.

        I don't get it either. Seems like the main developer made a change he only understands and can't quite see why blurry fonts are a problem. Instead of admitting either his implementation or the whole idea is just plain wrong, as evidenced by the crap font rendering.
