Default Shitty fonts/theme in Mozilla apps in Fedora 15

How do I adjust the themes and font for Mozilla apps (Firefox &
Thunderbird) in F15? After upgrading from F14, using KDE, these apps
look pretty darn horrible, and I can't seem to find a way to adjust the
GUI's theme nor fonts. Fonts in rendered websites look washed out and
blurry. I've tried gnome-tweak-tool to no avail.

For me, this did the trick:

cd /etc/fonts/conf.d/
ln -s ../conf.avail/10-autohint.conf .

See bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=708525

Also if you "yum install dconf-editor" you can poke
around in org.gnome.desktop.interface and modify
things like gtk-theme, cursor-theme, default font, etc.

I've almost got my system back to where I no longer
want to puke :-).

Thank you so much for bringing this to my/our attention!!!

I have also had the spindly fonts in KDE (in Okular, too) and noticed that
they were thin and wiry up to size 13 and then suddenly went bold at size 14
(whatever unit that is, pt or px or... would be good to know).

My web pages never rendered correctly, I spent hours trying to find readable
setups in the browser, Dolphin was affected, etc.

Why this is not a default setting is beyond me. Without it, you practically
need a magnifying glass to read (in fact, I have often verified with one,
when legibility was ambiguous).

My fonts.conf:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM 'fonts.dtd'>
<fontconfig>
<match target="font" >
<edit mode="assign" name="rgba" >
<const>rgb</const>
</edit>
<edit mode="assign" name="hinting" >
<bool>true</bool>
</edit>
<edit mode="assign" name="autohint" >
<bool>true</bool>
</edit>
<edit mode="assign" name="antialias" >
<bool>true</bool>
</edit>
<edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle" >
<const>hintfull</const>
</edit>
<edit name="lcdfilter" mode="assign">
<const>lcddefault</const>
</edit>
</match>
</fontconfig>

And fonts look pretty good, but Banshee ignores these settings at all.

How do I fix this?
