Fonts and anti-aliasing

Much (digital) ink has been spilled over the subject of Apple’s font anti-aliasing choices for Safari on Windows. Jeff Atwood’s orginal post on the subject has two screen snapshots showing the differences, and Joel Spolsky adds a few soothing words saying that we pick what is most familiar to us.

But I am left with one question, if Safari on Windows can control the anti-aliasing policy, how does Firefox do it? I would be interested to see screen snapshots showing how it handle anti-aliasing on both platforms.
