I should mention that there's some chance a change
in my build environment caused this.
I recently switched from FC3 to Dapper Flight 6.
Also, I'd been running with corefonts installed on FC3
for a while, so who knows when this happened,
if it's real.

The symptom is that without core fonts, text in firefox
looks really thin; it's the right size and shape, but
the strokes are so thin as to be hard to see.
