I am sight impaired. All of my fonts are pretty large so that I can read them,
except for Firefox and other GTK applications. I am talkingabout the fonts in
the task bars, menus, etc.

Which FF version(s), in which openSUSE(s)?

In my personal settings> Appearance> GTK styles I have tried using the "Use
my KDE fonts" and other variations. To no avail. Nothing changes.

I'm sort of stumped by this report. I use 144 DPI myself on my 11.2/KDE3 server 24/7, 120 DPI on several other systems running 11.0, 11.1, 11.2, 11.3 & 11.4, most of them running KDE3 too. I can't recall FF on any any of them failing to use the same UI fonts as other applications once GTK is set to use KDE fonts in personal settings. shows what I see now in 11.2, with only Gimp's toolbox behaving badly with tiny text and icons. You can see open both of gnome-control-center's fonts windows, with fonts resolution set to 144 DPI. Are you sure yours isn't still forced to 96?

Is this problem of yours in 11.3 only? 11.2 only? 11.0 only? Did you copy your FF profile(s) from backup, or create it/them anew? Does your FF profile's chrome DIR contain a file named userChrome.css? If it does, does the problem remain if you close FF, rename it something else, then restart FF? Does the problem remain if you mv your FF profile dir to another name, thus causing a fresh profile dir to be created on next FF startup, or if you create a new test-only login and start FF from that?

I remember back in about the 9.0 days there was a file or something you could
download or edit or something that you could change the appearance of theGTK
stuff. Is there some equivalent was to do it now?

Gnome-control-center is the control app. ~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/font_rendering/%gconf.xml seems to be the applicable file. Mine contains:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<entry name="dpi" mtime="1289745355" type="float" value="144"/>
<entry name="hinting" mtime="1289745280" type="string">
<entry name="antialiasing" mtime="1289745279" type="string">
