Better Firefox fonts?

Quite often the fonts in a web page, or printing something from within
Firefox looks blurred. Here is a sample screenshot:

It's a random page I chose to exhibit the problem. Printing web pages
also looks like crap, but perhaps that's something to do with the
printing system?

Is it possible this is instead the driver for my video card? I'm using
a dual-head HD5700:

[    35.548] (--) PCI:*(0:6:0:0) 1002:68b8:174b:e147 ATI Technologies
Inc Juniper [Radeon HD 5700 Series] rev 0, Mem @ 0xd0000000/268435456,
0xfe9e0000/131072, I/O @ 0x0000e000/256, BIOS @ 0x????????/131072
[112179.601] (II) RADEON(0): Modeline "1680x1050"x0.0  146.25  1680
1784 1960 2240  1050 1053 1059 1089 -hsync +vsync (65.3 kHz)

Are there other driver choices for this card with FC13, like perhaps
one that supports the 3D acceleration?

In any case, I recall seeing a doc that described how to install the
Windows TT fonts, but can't find it now. I believe it was also for an
older version.
