When you are sitting here in front of my monitor, the fonts in firefox's menus look about twice as big (and maybe bold?) as the fonts in other applications menus. They realy stand out because all of the other applications fit together so well.

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.

So, both mozilla and firefox have really enormous fonts, not in the
webpages but in the applications themselves. I've spent about an hour
trying to fix this by adjusting the font sizes in both the applications
and in the kde preferences but nothing changes the enormoun fonts.
Anyone who can help will have my eternal gratitude ;-)

The only way to know what you mean by "enormous" is give us a link to a
screenshot showing the problem, but see generally:

Hmmm, this is rather puzzling. From the screenshots you have
submitted everything looks fine to me. Is it just me?
