Installed Firefox 3.5 on my Slackware 12.2 laptop with XFCE4 , in /usr/local/.
I have FireFox 3.0.11 already installed in /usr/bin/. My problem is though 3.0.11 displays the fonts beautifully, anti-aliasing is broken in 3.5 (even the interface fonts are ugly). I don't know whether to put this question in Slackware forum or Firefox forum.
Please refer the attachment (Though I doubt whether my problem will be clear in the attachment). The 'w's and 'y's are especially jagged. Please look at the address bar (http://www ....). The letters containing vertical strokes are also badly rendered. It is almost like two verticle strokes. Other applications that are kde based (like kpdf, for example) are also suffering from this problem.
Has it got something to do with Qt?
How did you install FF 3.5 ? Did you make any other changes before this happened ?
Downloaded the tar ball from Firefox then unzipped / untarred it to /usr/local. And I don't remember having done any changes I have made to the system except for installing dropline gnome, a fortnight back.
