[scribus] fontmatrix makes firefox go gah gah

i'm trying very hard to make linux my production machine.  i have many fonts
that i would like to install.  i hope not to begin a flame war and i
understand the sentiments of using ubuntu of some on this list, but whenever
i install fontmatrix (version included with jaunty), firefox does not
display text.

i know this because since reinstalling ubuntu and not fontmatrix i have not
had this problem.  i have read on the list that the version in jaunty is
pretty buggy.  is there another fontmanager that is available that is not so
buggy and wont make the text disappear in firefox?  coming from windows, i
would like to have a gui.

i have looked at defoma and find it difficult.  i wouldn't even know how to
begin to install additional fonts and don't know if it will accept otf and
ps fonts.

being still a novice to linux, i would appreciate any help.
