[Ubuntu 8.04]Yahoo mail layout displays wrong in firefox 3.0.1

I've used firefox for quite a long time. In windows, it works well. But in ubuntu, the yahoo mail layout is weird. I'm surprised that nobody has asked about this issue before (I've searched the forum but no luck).
How can I fix that ?

There is a screenshot of how ubuntu firefox display yahoo mail below. As you can see, some parts of the webpage is overlap.

(For who is not familiar with mediafire, please click the "View full image" at the right .)

Thank you.

Do you mean that the fonts are half over-printed? Seems to me like a web-design issue - using fixed pixel sizes and assuming everyone's fonts are the same size (presumably they are a little different in Ubuntu from Windows). You should probably report it to Yahoo.

Do you mean it's yahoo's issue, not firefox's ? But in windows firefox displays the page correctly. I think that's the ubuntu window manager (GNOME) messes this up. Anyway, I'll report this to yahoo. Thank you .
