Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala Fonts are wrong size

I have had a strange issue where my fresh install of Karmic Koala Ubuntu 9.10 render the fonts wrong. My friend had also just done a fresh install and had no issues. I tried messing with my DPI setting in the display options but to no luck.

I just tried installing the Microsoft Fonts and it fixed it!

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

I didn’t even restart firefox, just refreshed the page and all my website’s rendered correctly. Jordan: 1, Ubuntu: 1.
