Linux Mint / Ubuntu font problem on treehouse website


I want to get away from Windows so I swapped to Linux. I tried Ubuntu, then Linux Mint, but both have a problem with the font on teamtreehouse.com: some letters appear shorter than other. I have tried both Chrome and Firefox; same issue.

Here is a screenshot example: http://i.imgur.com/ALgWceY.png You can clearly see that the letters ' r , u , s , d , x ' are significantly smaller. As I am writing right now, it's eye-straining to re-read what I am typing.

There is another thread mentioning this problem, but no solution: https://teamtreehouse.com/community/is-the-font-screwed-up-for-everyone-else-in-the-forums

Should I set some specific system fonts in system configuration?

I remember installing Fedora 23 with Gnome 3.16 GUI as OS some time ago and I did not have this font issue with tth website, but I want to stay on Mint because it's much more friendly for people coming from Windows.

I notice this same problem on Ubuntu, but only on the small (body) text, like what I'm writing now. It seems that headers look even and good.

So still no solution?
