Hi again! Mozilla Browser


I wonder how I can display my hotmail nicely with Mozilla. Is it anything I can do?
I know most of u think "get rid of hotmail", but I've had it for some years know and I don't really want to change. If anyone has got any tips, I'll be grateful.

I think it'd be helpful for people if you could be more specific. Do you mean formatting? Text size? etc.

Ok.
Sorry. My fault.
I mean the fonts. The font is almost unreadable and the letter crash into eachother and such.
I have flash and java plugin but that has probably nothing to do with it?
Thx

Which browser are you using? Fiddling with the browser font settings helped me (not specific to hotmail, but for everything.)

Odd, have you tried installing other fonts than the ones linux came with? What about messing with your screen resolution?

Hmm....
Now I figured something out...
I have different font types and choices as root. When i work as root i display the hotmail fonts and site correctly, but not when i am logged in as user. Odd...anyone know a solution for that one?

Yeah I've found that being root solves a lot of my probs as well... as far as the font thing, maybe adding yourself to a certain group will allow those fonts to you as well? I'm not too sure as to what group specifically...could you list what groups your user account is in?
