Text rendering in FX3

Just out of curiosity, move ~/.mozilla somewhere else temporarily, then give
it a shot. That'll get rid of all plugins/customized settings/etc. Start FF,
and see what you get. I just upgraded FF to 3.0.5 and it still displays
fine. I'm running Adblock Plus 1.x currently, and nothing else. Disabled
noscript and firebug for the time being. When you're done, move the directoy
back to restore all your settings/etc (remove the new one).
