    I was having the same issue - couldn't believe my eyes on how horrible and fuzzy Flash Builder looked on my new Macbook Pro w Retina.  Was suffering through it for the past week and just found this work around that someone figured out for Eclipse that also works on Flash Builder (guess b/c it's built on Eclipse).  Here's the link to the bug report that shows the work around (Thanks to Brad Hudgeons):


    here's a cut and paste from the bug report in case the above url gets removed:


    Here's the workaround:  Do "Show package contents" on the  Edit Contents/Info.plist.  Just above  </dict> </plist>  Place this:  <key>NSHighResolutionCapable</key> <true/> 


    Instead of Eclipse, show package contents on Adobe Flash Builder   After you edit the Info.plist file, go back up to the Adobe Flash Builder and duplicate it.  It will create a Adobe Flash Builder 4.6  Delete your original Adobe Flash Builder 4.6 and rename the Adobe Flash Builder 4.6 to Adobe Flash Builder  Then launch Flash Builder - you should see text that is much clearer.  The graphics on the ui are still blurry but at least the text should be crisp.
