Question Mozilla 1.4 and incorrect font layout

redhat 8, kernel 2.4.20-19.8

i just installed mozilla 1.4 but have still the same problem as before:
on many pages i have lines that are barely readable - it's like some millimeters of the line have been cut off or the line has been fold.

any ideas?

i haven't found any solution yet - so maybe you could give me a hint.

In your Preferences, Font settings, try to set minimum font size (10,12,14, depends on your resolution).

Is it just mozilla which is affected?

If you are also having problems with the font in other GTK applications,
fire up gnome-font-properties, check the sizes for the font properties
there, and also click on the DETAILS button in the bottom right of
the panel to get a new panel Font Rendering Properties and check
that the value for Resolution is set correctly for your monitor.

Thumbs down

thanks for your help. but I gave up mozilla - instead I'm now using the (kde) konqueror. it uses AA fonts and permits more settings to be done.
