On the page linked above, link text is not rendered properly

What I see here

Point-resized to emphasize:

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit the page, see the links 
2. if hovered, it is rendered correctly
3. Visited link is not displayed correctly as well, for that you obviously need to visit that link first.

Actual Results:  
Specified text is not correctly rendered, as screenshots demonstrate.

Expected Results:  
Text properly rendered, e.g. IE8 renders the same page properly

This is not the only page that exhibits this particular problem, throughout the development of 4.0 I've seen a number of them with the same behaviour (and not only link text was affected).

Not sure why firefox renderer does so, tried with no plugins in safe mode and on either of my two monitor setup -- same result. Tried to change text size via control+ -- rendering problem still persist. 

Link text is not much of the problem, it is worse when entire blocks of text are rendered incorrectly. Will find links to these websites later if requested.
