To fix the strangely large Firefox fonts in Ubuntu Karmic:
sudo rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/10-hinting-slight.conf sudo rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/10-no-sub-pixel.conf sudo ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.available/10-hinting-medium.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/. sudo ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.available/10-sub-pixel-rgb.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/. sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig
Thanks to this post on the Ubuntu forums.

Thanks Carlo! That worked a treat.
I didn’t do the command
sudo rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/10-no-sub-pixel.conf
because that file doesn’t exist on my system.
But the problem was sorted using the rest of the commands.
