Have you tried a different font?  On mine I'm using MS Times New Roman, size
14, line spacing 1.2.  And it looks great.

On my system, the text was perfectly fine before I changed the settings.  I
can't remember what the default font and size was, but it was legible and not
overwritten like the example you posted.

Have you tried removing ~/.FBReader to see if it solves itself on a clean
restart?

What does the Style group in ui.xml have to say?  Here is mine:

 <group name="Style">
    <option name="Base:fontFamily" value="Times New Roman"/>
    <option name="Base:fontSize" value="14"/>
    <option name="Base:lineSpacingPercent" value="120"/>
