Font look differences between IE & FireFox

Hi,
the growing number of users that use Mozilla Firefox made me think twice before optimizing my web-sites. I wanted them to look the same in IE and Firefox. Let`s say i`ve covered 90%-95% of this problem because it`s a shame that Firefox doesn`t support propertys like scrollbar-darkshadow-color but i`ll pass that.
After i did the research and solve the important issues the pages look the same in ff and ie but only at first sight. On internet explorer characters ar smooth and nice but in firefox the same characters at the same size look "pixelated". Is there a way to solve this?

Anticipated thanks

I don't know how to solve this, however I do know that it is perfectly normal, and people used to using FireFox will be used to this.

I think it's due to the default font used in FireFox, which can be changed under Tools>Options.

I hope this helps with your problem.

Talking

and dont forget, firefox uses open source to view the website, so if that doesnt work, or if noone knows how to change the font, just make the <b>Bold Text Tags</b> and it will make them not pixilated, it might be a little bit bigger in IE than in FireFox but atleast it willnot be pixelated.

Firefox complies with W3C Web Standards more so than Internet Explorer does. IE is well known as a "broken browser".

I'd suggest when you design to design around more compliant browsers such as Firefox, Safari, Opera, and then insert fixes for IE. This will ensure that your site appears right on as many browsers as possible, rather than just IE. Since there are around 1300 million users plus of the internet, and IE only holds about 50% of those users to its services, more and more web developers are needing to take alternative browsers into consideration when designing websites.

The font issue isn't a major one, but as I said in my post before, Firefox users will be used to this and no-one will judge the quality of your site by non-anti-aliased text.
