Sorry, I said raster, but meant vector

testcase, Courier vs. Courier New

Sorry, not quite sure what you mean here.  Courier, the bitmap font, seems to render fine even when enlarged.  Can you attach a screenshot of the "other font" you think it's switching to?

Try to set font-size to 306pt, also why is it not possible to get that big text with font tag and size?

Courier is a bitmap font available in limited sizes. As you should be able to see using attachment 311053 [details] , Firefox trunk renders exactly the same as IE7. If you want good font behavior regardless of font size, select a modern vector font. -> INVALID
