I used IE first time in 3 years. I was able to READ the screen without my glasses. Didn't realize Firefox FONTS were so 'weak' Tried most everything to get Firefox fonts to look as bold and clean. Failed. Ideas please.

I used IE first time in 3 years. When I did I was able to READ the screen without my glasses. Didn't realize Firefox FONTS were so 'weak' Tried most everything to get Firefox fonts to look as bold and clean. No luck.

How do I get Firefox to DISPLAY a font as clear and clean as Word? I choose different fonts in Firefox and sizes and nothing really happens.
