What versions of pango and cairo do you have installed?
Comment 3 Dennis Jacobfeuerborn 2005-07-30 10:51:08 EDT

but the rendering looked the same with the versions before the last Rawhide
update of these packages.
Comment 4 Dennis Jacobfeuerborn 2005-07-30 11:03:49 EDT
For the record: Disabling Pango in /usr/bin/firefox by uncommenting the
following lines (as mentioned in
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=164664 ) makes the
font-rendering look fine again.

## Set MOZ_ENABLE_PANGO is no longer used because Pango is enabled by default
## you may use MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=1 to force disabling of pango

Now that bug 164664 is fixed i was able to use firefox with pango enabled for a
while and noticed that the problem on appears with serif fonts while sans-serif
fonts are displayed correctly.

Very old Bug. Closing this for now as we already got new updated firefox in
rawhide now. Kindly submit bugs against new rawhide version.
