In Firefox 3.6 on Ubuntu 9.10, certain sites seem to use bitmap fonts for any fixed-width fonts, but only at specific zoom levels. This site and other Stack Exchange sites are among the affected sites, and of course the default zoom level is affected. At unaffected zoom levels, I get the expected smooth curvy fonts. How can I make Firefox use the nice curvy smooth fonts at all zoom levels?

Edit: Adding example code for my own reference.

This is code. I want it to look smooth and pretty.

Ok, it seems that the problem is that I put some version of Monaco font in ~/.fonts/. So I suppose this is ultimately a duplicate of Monaco font not antialiased in some GTK apps
