Xubuntu 7.04 + Ubuntuzilla = large spaces between lines in Firefox

I just installed Xubuntu 7.04 a couple days ago, and because I wanted to get quicker updates for Firefox and Thunderbird I installed Ubuntuzilla. After using Ubuntuzilla to install Firefox, large spaces started appearing between lines. I have uploaded an example here.

Has anyone seen something like this before? Any ideas on how I can get rid of those god-awful spaces?

OK, after looking into the stylesheets on the pages that were giving me the trouble, I noticed this was happening a lot with stylesheets that referenced Verdana and Arial, two fonts not present on my system. I copied over the MS TrueType fonts from my Windows partition (I knew that would come in handy one day!) and re-ran mkfontdir and fc-cache.
