Post FC3 - font spacing in mozilla browsers (specifically firefox)

This issue's been bugging me for a while.
I have Fedora Core 3. While I enjoy the fact that it comes bundled with firefox and it's the default browser, I don't understand why my fonts are spaced so far apart. It's akin to being in open office and having the default spacing set to 1.5 or perhaps double.
It's not glaring, but it's deffenetly noticable at my web site, The picture columns, on pretty much every computer and browser I use, are a little taller then the text/information columns on the left (how I want it to be). On my comp with FC3 and any mozilla based browser (I've tried firefox and epiphany) there's so much spacing between everything in the text column, that it's significantly taller then the picture column, and I don't like how it looks one bit.

It doesn't affect konqueror. And I didn't have this issue with FC2 when I installed firefox manually.

I've gone into my options and fiddled around, only thing I can really do is either change the text to something else, or just go to view -> text size -> decrease. Neither of those is obviously what I want. (After all, I specify what font sizes I want on purpose).

Is there some way to change how much spacing the mozilla browsers put between all the text?
