Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Some fonts render poorly in web pages. One example is Franklin Gothic.
It looks as though the font renderer is not using the bytecode
interpreter for hinting, despite the fact that my system's fontconfig-
config is configured to use method "native", and if I look at a page
that uses Franklin Gothic, such as http://www.the-
guidepost.com/browse_the_library/index.html in Konqueror, the font is
rendered correctly, as it is in gnome-font-viewer. Firefox is the only
application that seems to have this problem.
