i have some unusual problem in firefox, the font in firefox is not working properly, it become narrow then rest of the windows font, sometimes it looks very small, i have tried default settings of font in firefox, but it was not helpful, pleas if someone can help me it would be a great pleasure for me,,, i am giving a link to visualize the situation,



Seems like you might be missing a font-package. For example, in ubuntu-minimal, I do not have any extra packages so the terminal font overlaps each other. I used sudo apt-get install ttf-ancient-fonts and that did the trick for the terminal. This may also work for firefox, if not, try other font families. These font packages can be found here

Hope this helps.
