In http://www.theregister.co.uk main page the title of the articles are missing
some words. The missing words appear if pass with the mouse pointer on the links.
The bug is also present in the latest firefox.
I'm using a gtk+2 compiled mozilla with fedora core 2 and the freetype library
recompiled with the bytecode interpreter.
The fonts in mozilla are the default one and i have antialias disabled on the
desktop. The desktop font is Tahoma.

I have seen this problem also in other web pages but in the register it happens

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open mozilla or firefox
2.Go to http://www.theregister.co.uk

Actual Results:  
Heading not fully displayed

Expected Results:  
Headings fully displayed

In http://arslinux.com/~sri/wordpress/index.php?p=12 most of the text appears
only when you select it with the mouse. It seems related to this bug.

I tried with trunk build 2004080523 on a clean tao linux system.
The bug appears as soon as i disable the antialias in gnome preferences.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.

do you still see this problem when using firefox version 3.5 or 3.6?
If not, please close the bug (resolution WORKSFORME is one possibility).
And if you do see the problem, please provide an update comment.
