In xp, in Opera, I never want a webmaster fonts. I can set minimum font size, force everything to be sans serif and bold.

I do not see such a thing in firefox, which I am forced to use in Linux because of space concern.


Wait, I see. No force to bold though.

Also, in xp you must set some advanced font thing to make font edges more sharp. How does Linux handle that?

You will find this settings in edit --> preferences, content tab, in default typography, advanced.

There you can tick the kind and size of letter you want, also you can tick the option to let pages to use their own typography.

As far as system wide making edge interpolation sharper of fonts on lcd, I was thinking of clear type.

Not sure if this will help, but there's a firefox addon called "No Squint" that allows you to adjust text etc for pages. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2592
