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:' lines in 
res/forms.css:

-moz-field  ->  small sans-serif
-moz-fixed  ->  medium mono
-moz-list   ->  small sans-serif
-moz-button ->  small sans-serif


Still, I do not understand this discrepancy in rendering (Windows in 
contrast to Unix Firefox) as it obviously can be avoided.

Now this bug is resolved WONTFIX, so I'd like to know why my proposal is 
objected. Can anybody please explain this to me?

Cheers
Daniel Kabs

Cannot change the font or font size of PicButtn ocx.
Hello, I am using PB 6.5.1 Enterprise for Win32. I inserted a PicButtn ocx control into a window and changed the font and font size using the OLE Control Properties button on the OLE Custom Control window. I saved and closed the window. When I re-opened the window the picbuttn ocx font and font size had changed back to their initial settings. I believe this is a standard OCX, and it with PB, although I am not positive. I was not able to locate an associated help file. Then name of the OCX is PicButtn.OCX, dated 9/24/96 11:54am. It was located in the Windows/System dir...

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.

Changing default printing font size.
I have configured a network printer using jetdirect and generic ibm drivers. It seems that the default font size is 10 cpi; I have manually set up the printer to use 17.1, but the suse keeps sending 10.
