On numerous pages it looks as though inline elements (bold text, links, italics,
etc.) aren't laid out correctly: The element is placed on top of part of the
surrounding text. Sometimes this just eliminates the space between it and the
rest of the text; at other times, parts of words are obscured by the inline
element sitting on top of them. You can see good examples of this through out
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org, as well as at http://macslash.org. It seems to be
worse at some font size settings. I don't think this is a Gecko problem because
it doesn't occur in Camino or Mozilla.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit one of the pages listed above.
2. If you don't see the problem, try adjusting the browser's font size setting.
Actual Results:  
See description above.

Expected Results:  
Inline elements should be laid out in line with the surrounding content.

An example

The attached example is from the page http://www.bugzilla.org. Note how the
bold text is misaligned.

Looks like it was a problem with my configuration. I deleted all Mozilla-related
files and it went away. Sorry to bother you. Thanks though: I've been seeing
this problem since the first release of Firebird.

When a problem occurs with the font currently used, a cause may be known by
showing the font name and a user customize file.

I've been experiencing the same problem (in-line elements overlapping text) --
but don't quite understand the fix. What Mozilla-related files should I be
looking for? or setting updates? to fix this?
