Adobe Reader - Why Characters inside input boxes are only partially visible???

I am using RHEL 6.0 with Adobe Reader 9.1.0 installed. Adobe Reader is installed properly.But when i type some thing in Find box appears in the toolbar, the text is not clear.The top and bottom of the characters are hidden. It's not readable.It's not only with find box. The same issue appears in every input text box in the Adobe reader.

In Firefox19.0.2 also some websites with small text boxes replicating the same issue.

I can't be able to figure out which is causing the problem. Please help me to get rid of this issue.

Here i have attached the screenshot,

you do know that Gnome already has a default pdf reader -- pre installed already
and "Okular" for the KDE desktop

also with the now current Firefox 20
a pdf viewer is already built in .

to install evince ( if not already by default )

su -
yum install evince
and please upgrade to firefox 20 for the security fixes

also you might want to upgrade your old rhel6.0 to the current RHEL 6.4
su -
yum releaserver=6.4 upgrade
double check the spelling of "releaserver" with
yum --help

but i am betting that the font issue is that adobe reader is not finding the needed Microsoft fonts

see this fedora guide ( the rpm will install on RHEL/CentOS/SL )

or install the red hat liberation fonts ( if not already installed )
