So, I used Ubuntu Wiki's guide to enabling bitmap fonts.
I was already kinda tired so I didn't even bother reading and didn't see that you could enable specific bitmap fonts.

I used

cd /etc/fonts/conf.d/
sudo rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/10* && sudo rm -rf 70-no-bitmaps.conf && sudo ln -s ../conf.avail/70-yes-bitmaps.conf  
sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig

And want anti-aliased fonts back since this (firefox and pretty much everything else that isn't using a bitmap font) does indeed look terrible.

Any ideas?

SORRY, I meant re-disabling :c –  engraze Jun 9 '13 at 10:39
you want one font globally on your machine ? - or you want for one program special (own) font ? –  dschinn1001 Jun 9 '13 at 10:43
I want my entire system to use anti-aliased fonts and then I'll just follow the Wiki's guide on allowing single fonts bitmapped. –  engraze Jun 9 '13 at 12:06
