    Just installed FF on my works machine, and found that the fonts are utter pants compared to IE.

    I vaguelly recall fixing this on my home machine, but I have no idea how I did it, and cant seem to see any options in the app.

    Is this what you mean?

    Fonts & Colors Normally, web pages are displayed in the default font set by your browser or in a font chosen by the web pages' authors. Here, you can select the font and font size used when web pages don't specify one. For more advanced font options, click on Advanced..., or for colors options, click on Colors....

    Fonts for:
    You can actually set a specific default font for various types of fonts, and character sets.
    To change the default fonts by font type and character set:
    1. From the Fonts for drop-down list, choose a character set. For instance, to set default fonts for the Western (Roman) character set, choose Western.
    2. Select whether proportional text should be serif (like "Times New Roman") or sans-serif (like "Arial"). Then specify the font size you want for proportional text.
    3. Specify the font to use for Serif, Sans-serif and Monospace fonts. You can also change the size for Monospace fonts.
    Finally, you can set the minimum font size to be used on screen. This can be useful on some sites that use very small fonts that are barely readable.
    Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above By default, Firefox uses the fonts specified by the Web page author. Uncheck this option to force all sites to be using your default fonts instead.

    See here for the page, if it is.

    You can also go to the FF home page and download add ons to make the browser look better, I use the one that looks a bit like IE but with no sctipt and adblocker added to it.
