    fedora 8 showing websites vs windows websites

    Hi, I am new to linux world and I love Fedora bcs it works well. I am a website programmer/designe and i have only one problem with linux.

    On my linux websites looks different then on windows. Fonts are much smaller and thats why I cant use it for website developement. So I am asking is there any way how to make showing websites in linux looks like in windows?

    you can see difference on this screenshots

    I believe the small fonts in Firefox is a known quirk with Fedora 8 (you're using 8, I assume?). Several people on the forums have reported the problem.

    Maybe this will be of some assistance:

    If you really want Firefox to render pages more like they would look in Windows, you could also try installing MS TrueType fonts. Google around or search the forums.

    (Also, Fedora is not = Linux. This problem with Firefox font size is not seen in all Linux distros. That's why it's a bit curious when you say "my Linux.")

    Code the website correctly, following the W3C recommendations. See also this: http://www.w3.org/QA/Tips/font-size The problem is in the site, not in Fedora.
