Firefox shows websites differently on Windows and Linux

sling-shot

Wise Old Owl
I dual boot Windows XP and various Linux distributions (preferred PCLinuxOS)

I have always seen that the same website appears more cramped for room when viewed in Linux. The menu bars displayed by most websites appear stretched into 2 lines in Linux while the same appears fine on Windows. The flowing content stretches far more in Linux.

I think this is probably the way fonts are rendered on Linux or maybe just different fonts being used and their sizes.

I am looking for suggestions to make websites appear in Linux as close to their Windows appearance as possible.
