Steps to Reproduce:
1. Browse to http://fedoraproject.org

Text spacing is wildly inconsistent making the page difficult to read.

We filed this bug in the upstream database (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=464684) and believe that it is more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.

Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.

Thank you for the bug report.
