    some pages (oink when in search part) have some part of text that are almost unreadable in FF but are fine in Safari. Anything I can do to fix that?

    pretty much all pages are normal except a few and it's always part of text that does it. Safari is fine

    it's fine if I increase the font but that's not what I want to do. did some research and it's just FF not rendering properly or something?

    How good is safari I mean if things look better no reason to stick with FF. I just use it because I had it on my pc and knew it was a good browser but if safari is better then I'll change

    Min font size 9 fixes the problem.

    I guess FF must interpret a friendly name like "x-small" in the style sheet a bit funny.
