I was using 1.7.2 (Supplied by Mandrake 10.1 Powerpack) and everything worked

The image in the URL is the two versions side by side. 1.7.5 on the left, 1.7.2
on the right.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Install 1.7.5 on mandrake

Actual Results:  
Fonts are not being used

Expected Results:  
Fonts should work like 1.7,2

The fonts are so bad, I can't even read pages

Screenshots should be attached to the bug, not put as URL.

Which 1.7.5 did you install? You cannot expect good results on Mandrake 10.x
from the standard build, which is a gtk1 build. On recent Mandrakes
you need a gtk2+xft build, which is what Mandrake's rpms are, or one from
that has linux and xft in its filename. Verify you are using a correct build via
urlbar 'about:buildconfig' to find "--enable-default-toolkit=gtk2" and
"--enable-xft". See also

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

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.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
