setting font sizes *everywhere* in Thunderbird?

My problem comes from the fact that I also began to use TB on an EEE PC
(under linux). Because the screen of that device is relatively small,
real estate is expensive. One of the obvious way is to reduce the font
size used up by programs like TB.

Of course, there is an option panel for fonts and that includes setting
the font size. However that seems to set the font for the message panel
only, ie, where the mail itself is displayed. It does not seem to affect
the other panels like:

- fonts used in the menus
- fonts used in the mailbox folder listing
- fonts used in the list of mails

and all those fonts are fairly large, unfortunately. I realize this
might be an issue with the underlying system (Linux, ie, Xandros) or the
particular theme I use. I tried to change themes but found no one to
reduce that size.

Is there a particular chrome setting where this could be done? I would
really appreciate a pointer.

Sincerely

Ivan Herman

you would make changes to a file called userChrome.css 
or install an addon called stylish which is an advanced 
userChrome.css.  You can get stylish from here: 
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/2108

Then you can look around here: http://userstyles.org/ 
for some scripts on how to change the looks of TB or 
give you some hints on how to do it.

transporting settings/emails from mozilla-mail to mozilla-mail
Hallo, I've got a really, really big problem. I'm working with mozilla-mail on an Linux OS for about 2 or 3 years. Two months ago my harddisk crashed. To keep on working , I set up a new Linux OS with the new mozilla-mail. Now the harddisk is repaired. I could reach my mails and setings (filter, accounts...) of the last 2 or 3 Years again, if I knew how to import these information from the old system into the new system. Help needed, because I'm without any e-mail-address of the last 2 or 3 years. Thanks Karsten ...
