FC8 Font Problems

I upgraded from FC7 to FC8 and my fonts are pretty messed up. The worst is in Firefox and Yumex. Most webpages I can hardly see because the fonts are so small and bad. I found a site that mentioned Fedora's fonts changed location so maybe a path didn't get updated properly. But I'm not sure where to look. Any help would be appreciated.

I don't think there is a font-path problem.
I suspect the upgrade simply changed some settings. (Just upgraded myself and noticed the same thing)

System->settings->"look and behaviour"(?)->"look"(?)

or simply run the gnome-appearance-properties from the terminal, you can change font settings from here... Assuming you're using gnome, ofc...

(?)just guessing what they are called in english
