Re: font problem in Fedora 10/Thunderbird

I just installed Fedora 10 (from FC7) on a Toshiba laptop. When reading email in Thunderbird, the fonts now look rather weak and frail and are rather hard to read. When composing email the fonts are just fine. This is probably pretty simple to fix, but I've looked on FAQ's high and low and can't find the problem. Also, I have tried changing settings in Edit>Preferences>Display, and this too does not work. If this post is off topic (i.e. a thunderbird post) then my apologies. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I have dropped TBird since Seamonket-2.0alpha was available, but I would suspect in preferences there's a checkbox called something like "let messages set their own fonts," and you have it ON. If someone posts using a bizarre font or size it will bypass the default you set.

This is a wild-ass guess and may not reflect your problem, but it's easy to check.
