I'm running Firefox version 1.0.7. and all the text looks fine to me. I can't tell by the numbering system if your version is newer or older than mine. Either you could try upgrading or maybe I should hold off.

Hey, can someone try this for me: go to my previous post with the (G7) line in it (not the latest one, the one before that), click the reply-to button, edit out the first QUOTE tag and the last /QUOTE tag, and then hit the "preview" button. Does the (G7) line look tiny in the preview window, too?



Done. G7 is still small in the preview. I'm assuming you meant msg #96143, here.

1.5.0.4 is the most recent stable release, and I'm not going backwards for such a minor issue. Actually, I've still got all the installations back to 1.0.2, I might try installing on an old PC sometime this weekend and and see what effect it has.

Software versioning systems are not always intuitive, although Mozilla's are generally consistent. The highest (left-most) digits always take priority, namely 2.3.4 is "greater than" 2.2.9

What I find them annoying is when developers use a single decimal point to delineate between a major and minor release, when 2.12 is supposed to be greater than (later) 2.2. In other words, to some developers version 1.2 is very different to 1.20, even though a mathematician might see it otherwise.[/rant]

Okay, I finally installed Firefox myself,
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.4) Gecko/20060508 Firefox/1.5.0.4
And now I can see the problem. In both normal and "safe" modes. Still don't know how to fix the problem, but if a different version of Firefox works, then I wonder just how much I should be working to fix it.

Check your Firefox settings (or your IE settings), 'cause everything looks exactly the same size for me in Firefox as in IE. Except the toolbars, of course.

Well, the font size looks fine with the current download version of Mozilla:
Mozilla 1.7.13 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.13) Gecko/20060414
So what the heck is going on?

Wow, you're right. I just signed on with Mozzila 1.7 for Mac and the fonts that were small are fine. Go figure...

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Firefox version testing:

Okay: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.13) Gecko/20060410 Firefox/1.0.8
Fail: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5

There are no versions in between those two. So I'm pretty sure - since our HTML doesn't change based on the browser - that this small-font bug was introduced with Firefox 1.5, although that still leaves Camino as an open question. Not that the HTML served out by the SFN is perfect...

The latest nightly build of Firefox (when I downloaded it),
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060714 Minefield/3.0a1
does not have the font problem. Perhaps Firefox fans will just have to wait for the next official release. At least, Firefox's bug-reporting "rules" say that if the bug doesn't appear in the latest nightly build, then don't report it. So I'm not going to.
