    It was funny, I saw this font file in BLTicklemonster's sig and copied it as directed. I was doing some work on a video so I totally forgot that I had put it in there. It was a day or so later when I rebooted and my firefox were much better than they were. I forgot about this file until I read this post, so a belated thanks.

    You can make a compromise and run 'sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig'.

    this trick is a god-send, thanks, but why on earth isn't this autohint thingie enabled by default? so far everybody seems to have been extremely happy with this tweak... besides, I would reccomend saving the contents of that file to /etc/fonts/local.conf to get autohinting even in kdm.

    besides, thanks again!
