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
-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?
