Firefox Font


I have the latest version of Firefox installed however my font for the forums is just gross! It's so nasty, I can't even stand surfing the web. I have tried messing with it but I get confused because there are many font options and variations and I am not sure which needs to be changed. As I type this reply in the white blank box, my font looks fine but when I look at thread or forum listings, well - you can see my examples.

Here is a perfect example of how nice my font looks in Google

Here is the problem when searching forums...

LQ.org

Hard Forums

As you can see the font is all jagged and nasty looking - not smooth like my Google page is.

Here are my Font settings...

Preferences
Fonts

Please - any suggestions...

Thanks so much! That totally changed my font and looks 100% better! I like your window manager - which do you use?

Do you by any chance know how to make Firefox display the flox logo rather than the globe logo in the window tray? I think you may see an example of what I am talking about between your screenshot and mine.

Thanks
I use Fluxbox. For the firefox icon, its a gnome thing. You should be able to change it.

Just follow the handbook. Gentoo has great doc's. The wiki is the best. The forum is not bad.
I do spend alot of time reading. I just steal from someone else.
later
