When you change the size of the font in the Font preference applet,
firefox doesn't automaticalyl resize its app font to be the same. 
This sucks for people who are blind or just came back from a pupil
dilation at the optometrist and are mostly blind for the next 2 hours.

Ok, it does somewhat track the GNOME app font, but you have to quit &
restart to get it to recognize the font change.  Come on, even OOo can
change the font size and face of its app font on the fly :)  Get with
the program.

Is there a callback or something I can use?
