I'm just speculating, but the "awful" font appearance could be related
to Xft. I build mozilla with the following option:

# make WITHOUT_XFT=yes

This greatly improves font appearance in mozilla (IMHO). There may be
a way to fix this by tuning X, but then you have two problems :)

Do post if you find a workaround other than recompiling with the
above option.
