Description of problem:
The default Mozilla font settings do not seem to work as intended.
RedHat's Display settings under monitor reports that I am using 96DPI fonts.
Yet when mozilla is set to use "System Settings" for DPI some fonts are very
very small and unreadable. This can be witnessed on
RedHat's website www.redhat.com, the copy-write notice at the bottom of the
page is unreadable. Setting Mozilla to 96DPI solves this problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Go to www.redhat.com
3.look at font at the bottom of the page (copywrite notice)
4. Change Mozilla's DPI font settings from "Use system" to 96DPI. repeat
Actual Results: The correct fonts are not used.
Expected Results: 96DPI fonts to be used.
Mozilla is using the xfree DPI. The setting is for fontconfig/xft iirc. Once
we start using Mozilla w/ fontconfig/xft this will be fixed.
