Description Nikos Charonitakis 2008-02-26 19:15:04 EST
Description of problem:
Firefox shows many web sites with tiny fonts that really unreadable.
A user said that his firefox default font settings in windows are the same with
fedora but sites diplayed differently.
So the user has to go to advanced font settings and set "minimum font size" to a
different value(on every language he use). I think current value is "none"
I think that this situation is not ideal for novice fedora users.
I have to mention that this also is the case for epiphany.

We filed this bug in the upstream database
(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=419795) and believe that it is
more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.

Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug
tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration
in future updates.

Thank you for the bug report.
