    Okay, I'm fairly new to Linux. I recently installed Slackware 9.1 and the
    fonts in Mozilla look fine. So I installed Firefox, which is my preferred
    browser, and the fonts look crummy. They are jagged and often too small. How
    can I make them look like the Mozilla fonts?

    Get a build with xft and gtk2 and it will look much nicer.
    Try
    http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-
    trunk/firefox-i686-linux-gtk2+xft.tar.gz
