As far as I know I have done this and I just did it again to double check ;-) It looks like the same font being used but the scaling is different. In my experience with firefox and mozilla in other linux distros and in windows, the menu and tab fonts are usually the same size as the fonts in thunderbirds menus. Look here at the difference in size between the word file in firefox and in thunderbird:

That shows what I am talking about nicely.

Ok sure. There is nothing wrong with the fonts in the pages that firefox displays. The problem is in the application inself.

You can see a screenshot here:

You can see that the font in the mozilla menu are very large in comparison to the fonts in thunderbird and the kde desktop.


It looks like you are using KDE. Firefox takes the same fonts as all other GTK-applications. Configure the font types and sizes in the KDE control center. You have to restart firefox and maybe KDE.
