A question: when i install a new version of mozilla or netscape why does the fonts look crappy? I cannot change the font like in the one came with Fedora.

If you want the nice fonts make sure you install an XFT2 build, preferably a GTK2 one too. The normal build does not use anti aliased fonts.

Or, you can recompile the Mozilla source RPM without Xft:

1. rpm -Uvh mozilla-1.5-1.src.rpm

2. cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS

3. Edit mozilla.spec and remove "--enable-xft" from the "%define toolkit_options" line.

4. rpmbuild -bb --clean mozilla.spec

I had to make a link from "/usr/lib/libXinerama.a" to "/usr/X11R6/lib/libXinerama.a" to make this last step work.
