Question Ugly fonts in Mozilla on Mandrake and KDE


I have installed Mandrake 10 and Mozilla. I am using KDE.

How do I make the fonts in Mozilla look like they do in MS Explorer? I think
the fonts in Mozilla are too fat and blurry.

I have tried to install the fonts from my Windows-partition, and I have
experimeted with different fonts in Mozilla, but I can't get the fonts in
Mozilla look like they do in MS Explorer.

Any help would be appreciated.

I had a similar problem a few weeks back- installing 'mozilla-xft' fixed everything for me. I don't know if that's what it's called for Mandrake (I use Debian), but you can probably search for it with your package manager.
