Even if the fonts in firefox are the same, you see much worse in Fedora.

Can we have screenshots/photos of the two to be able to compare? My fonts look just fine :)

the answer maybe so easy because ubuntu use The Ubuntu Font Family that are a set of matching new libre/open fonts in development during 2010-2011. The development is being funded by Canonical on behalf the wider Free Software community and the Ubuntu project. since ubuntu 10.10 is used by default you can view here : http://font.ubuntu.com/

although FEDORA use another type of font.... you can change this behaviour installing

sudo yum install gnome-tweak-tool

and change that according your needs under font....

If sudo yum install gnome-tweak-tool does not work, try the command:

su -c 'yum install gnome-tweak-tool'

Alternatively, try the command su - (su space dash) to become root user. Then issue the command yum install gnome-tweak-tool.
