For what it's worth, I tried several sites from the "site sampler" on
www.homestead.com, and didn't find any readability (or operability) issues
with Firefox 220.127.116.11 running in Slackware Linux 10.1

- From my Firefox Preferences window, my
Default Font -> Bitstream Vera Serif (size 12)
Proportional -> Serif (size 12)
Serif -> Bitstream Vera Serif
San Serif -> Bitstream Vera Sans
Monospace -> Bitsream Vera Sans Mono (size 12)
Display Resolution -> 96 dpi
Minimum Font size -> 12
"Allow pages to choose their own fonts" checked
Default Character Encoding -> Western (ISO-8859-1)
