A lot of these problems will be dependant on the graphics hardware you're using, the drivers and the version of firefox. I'm using ATI graphics with firefox Nightly and everything is working quite well, although in benchmarks, firefox is pretty poor compared to same benchmarks under Windows 7. Until Mozilla update firefox - assuming it's a Mozilla problem - to use the latest HWA features of Windows 8, we'll just have t make do.
For anyone interested in Mozillas plans for a Metro version of firefox and for some interesting background information, you may find Windows8 of interest.

I'm having similar problems with all browsers (including IE) and an ATI card (12.10 driver). The fonts will not render properly and look blurry at first. With quick browsing/scrolling it can take a couple of seconds for them to "fix" themselves. Disabling hardware acceleration, on Firefox at least, solves it,
can someone tell me if this problem exists with the commercial release build of windows 8 and firefox 16.0.2 and if disabling HA fixes it?
It is a problem with windows 8 and Firefox , just wait for an update mate
