Change font/font size in Seamonkey2.0

Hi,
up to now i run SM1.1.18 under eCS2.0RC6a and tried to see how SM2.0 is 
usable for me. I am disappointed concerning windows display. The font 
size used are to large to describe the buttons and all other stuff 
including contents of some windows. My old window size is mostly to 
small to keep the text. The used times roman font is also not my favorite.

My question is: how can i modify or add which statements to about:config 
to adapt SM2.0 to look like SM1.1.18.

Thanks and have a nice day.
Karl

Where's the "times roman" font used - in Web content or in the 
SeaMonkey UI?

The Mozilla theme engine should pick the settings from the 
underlying system UI, but I really don't know what's the state with 
OS/2 (isn't eCS2.0 basically the same?) - whether there's an 
implementation for it.  I guess you could ask the folks over in the 
mozilla.dev.ports.os2 group.

In any case, you could customize the UI appearance through your 
"userChrome.css".  You could experiment with the following style rules:

window {
   font: 9px sans-serif !important;
}
dialog, wizard, page {
   font: 9px sans-serif !important;
}
button, toolbar, .toolbar-holder, toolbarbutton, tree {
   font: inherit !important;
}
statusbar, tooltip {
   font: 9px sans-serif !important;
}

You may also try using system font keywords [1], like:

dialog, wizard, page {
   font: message-box !important;
}

But I guess these should already be employed by the Classic 
SeaMonkey theme and if you get only "times roman" then they are not 
accessible from the underlying system UI through the theme engine, 
and the engine is falling back to some default ("times roman").

Hi Stanimir,

my problem is the to large text in the seamonkey UI. And all previous 
version (until 1.1.18)works fine and has adapt the underlaying system UI 
of eCS/os2.

Now i tried to use the userchrome-example.css in profile/chrome modified 
it and stored it under the name userchrome.css back. Did i something 
wrong because several different attempts show no effect. Any tips?

Have a nice day, karl

May be it is related to the source of your build (its configuration)
- do you build it on your own, or get it from somewhere?  If you're
using a pre-built binary, do you get SeaMonkey 1.1.18 and SeaMonkey
2.0 from the same place?  I'm cross-posting this to
mozilla.dev.ports.os2, just in case.

Try putting just the following rule in your "userChrome.css":

* {
  font: 9pt bold sans-serif !important;
}

Does it make any difference?  Note you need to restart SeaMonkey in
order changes to the "userChrome.css" to take effect.

changing default font size does not affect font size on form buttons and input fields.
Hello, in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=305109 I propose that changing the default font size in Preferences should also change the font sizes for form controls. On windows it works this way. Concerning Unix, though, the form controls keep their size, even if you adjust the default font size in Firefox preferences. This makes for ugly form controls if you do not adjust your GTK settings along with your Firefox default font size. But there is a workaround: you can also make Firefox scale the form controls by applying the following changes to 'font:' li...

support for WebOTF fonts in @font-face
Following long (and sometimes painful) debate on the w3c mailing lists, there seems to be pretty broad consensus that a new font format that we're calling WebOTF would be an acceptable way forward for use with @font-face, where many vendors are unhappy about licensing standard TTF/OTF fonts for web use. The WebOTF specification came about as a combination of an earlier proposal from a couple of type designers (.webfont) together with a simple compressed-font scheme (.zot). It is essentially a compressed repackaging of OpenType font data, with optional added metadata...
