Just wondering if there is any fix to this at all?? I tryed the hole Ctr thingy but that dose not do much. It makes it to big and makes things all pushed up and all.

As for fonts not being clear if you are using an LCD monitor then I would suggest the resolution is set wrong in Ubuntu

The font size in firefox can easily be changed, hold down the ctrl button and press + to increase the size

That could be something funny in firefox, I had a problem like that once and I went in to the firefox preferences and forced certain sizes of fonts.

Most standard LCD's are best at a resolution of 1024*768 I believe, if you can't get that check your video drivers. That window title bar is huge, I have my res at 1280*1024 and mine is only about .5cm
