firefox fonts problem


I am using firefox in fluxbox. Some fonts look bold and chunky and i can't figure out how to make them look better, like it should be. I have enabled antialiasing in fluxbox.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Have as look at this thread first:

If you need more help, tell us first what you have tried. I'm sure it's just a case of configuring Freetype.

If you setup 100dpi or better for fonts maybe using 75dpi fonts for firefox can help solve problem. Firefox has properties menu. Also firefox web site may have solution for your specific problem. Check with them before making changes.
