Description of problem:
In Phoebe2 Mozilla began to default to the following fonts:
Serif: Bitstream Charter
Sans-serif: Bitstream Charter
Cursive: Bitstream Charter
Fantasy: Bitstream Charter
Monospace: Bitstream Charter
1) Bitstream Charter seems to be ugly compared to the default fonts in previous
2) Bitstream Charter is not a Monospace font.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Phoebe2
2. Use Mozilla as a new user.
Poor font defaults, and Monospace is not monospace.
Better font defaults, (based upon usability tests?)
Are you seeing those as the defaults in the fonts pref panel or actually being
used in the browser?
These are probably the patches that I'm going to be using in our Mozilla release.
Rawhide mozilla uses System fonts by default. Should this bug be considered fixed?
Ahh, yes. Thanks. I forgot to close the bug. You're not having any more
problems with that, right?
