Firefox 3 and fonts issue in ubuntu

Sometimes Firefox does not display fonts properly and when the element was inspected it may have the style for fonts that say it to be rendered in arial or some other font. Its very annoying but it's the fact. The fact is we spend much of time on web reading the text so its the most important part of the web.

The best way is to install Microsoft fonts from synaptic or run this sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts in terminal.

Restart the browser. Now the output will be as desired

If you still have the problem in viewing the page and specific to the fonts the reason could be the permissions to the fonts files and directories. Check the permission in your .fonts folder in home directory. May be the read rights missing. Change it accordingly and bingo you fix the problem.

Enjoy the best browser :)
