I frequently use this
interface for research purposes. Unfortunately, it does not render correctly on my version of Konqueror (3.5.2). When I attempt to zoom in, I get the following error message:

Because Mozilla-based browsers do not handle fonts very well on Linux, I am forced to use Windows to properly access the page. I first brought the matter to attention in this
post. In the following post, user d00bid00b
was able to successfully render the page (it should be noted that the user used a different version of Konqueror, 3.4.2, to test the interface). Thus, I request an answer to one of the following questions:
(1) How can I configure Konqueror to render the page correctly?
(2) How can I configure a Mozilla-based browser (preferably Firefox) to handle fonts correctly in KDE?
For the moment, the fonts in Mozilla-based browsers are much more difficult to read and look much less attractive in Firefox because they have a narrow, unevenly spaced appearance. In addition, the GTK+ rendering of Firefox in KDE 3.5.2 leaves much to be desired; when I hover over a checkbox, for instance, the checkmark previously present seems to disappear. I use the Clearlooks GTK2 theme.
