I suspect that is has to do with some interaction between Gecko, Cairo
and Pango. There are many posts in various fora discussing both font
rendering and page layout problems with FF under Linux.

One of my favorite "broken" web sites using FF on Linux is


The entire navigation column that is supposed to be on the left hand
side of the page is in fact centered, resulting in the primary page
content being pushed down to below the navigation column.

If you want to help (though the above should be a well known example),
in FF using the menus, go to:

  Help -> Report Broken Web Site...

and submit a report.
