I mean the fonts of the app itself, not the web pages rendered

If I change the DPI fonts resolutions (appearence preferences, fonts, details) from 96 dpi to, let's say, 80 the look fine, but obviously the rest of the apps get shrinked...

somehow Firefox interprets the DPI setting differently than the rest of the applications

using Ubuntu 10.10 and Firefox 4.0, I tried in a VirtualBox machine with similar configuration and it looks good, maybe it's got something to do with the video driver...

@Matt Jenkins hey matt we both did not read carefully at first i think opensas says that the page fonts are ok but the app font like title bar fonts are bigger then usual. –  kaykay Apr 16 '11 at 6:33

I think I found the answer...

just copy

~/.mozilla/firefox/ioasquri.default/chrome/userChrome-example.css

as

~/.mozilla/firefox/ioasquri.default/chrome/userChrome.css

and add the following line at the end

* { font-size: 9pt !important }
