You might be able to fix it by installing Xfree86 + some freetype or opentype fonts.

Another thing about DSL fonts in Firefox...they look doubly bad because Firefox still attempts to scale them even though they are not scalable, so you get a lot of fuzzy or pixelated text that would be much more readable if the font sizes were left alone.

One thing that I would like to improve is Firefox display. Its good but could be much better when you compare with XP. Anything I could do to improve display?

Have you tried to add the following to your user.js?

Code Sample

user_pref("font.FreeType2.autohinted", true);
user_pref("font.FreeType2.enable", true);
