I downloaded firefox 2.0 on my home computer and work computer. Ever since then I have been having some font display problem with Firefox on both computers. On "some" pages, the font looks very hard to read.

This page from Firefox looks normal to me:

But this page:

The font looks all screwed up. The font looks bolded, and a little stretched. I also found that the font looks normal in fields like "input type=text", but it looks screwed up in "<textarea>".

Anyone have similar issues?

Did you have an earlier version of Firefox running before you installed FF 2.0? What are the listed default fonts in your Preferences?
