Currently QT fennec is using gfxFT2Fonts.cpp, and text spacing is bad. I think we have to do fix similar to bug 470440.
Created attachment 431080 [details] Example with hinting turned on and off In the attachment I have modified the default cairo font options to disable hinting, the result is not convincing, might there be other places where hinting could be used? - we don't use Pango for Qt builds.
Pango backend now available for Qt builds... it would be nice to see same test results for Qt build with pango backend enabled.
In that case, that sounds like the ideal solution, as we have already fixed the issue in the Pango code, should that be a separate bug blocking this one, or should we just say that it is the solution to this bug?

Do we need to integrate a new version of Pango (which one?), or do our current integration support Qt?
Created attachment 431818 [details] Now with pango support After Pango in bug 550469 has been added to trunk, this bug seems to have been fixed as we expected :)
