I have the pref explicitly set to 1.75 and checkboxes are tiny, which is visually rather cute and whimsical, but aiming at the things becomes a chore... Ted and Gijs pointed me at this code: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/widget/gtk/nsNativeThemeGTK.cpp?force=1
OS: Linux → All
Hardware: x86_64 → All
Even changing the zoom with Ctrl-+ doesn't affect checkboxes.
Created attachment 8455527 [details] comparison of devPixelsPerPx=-1 and 2 I've been meaning to file this forever. Here's a comparison of what I see between stock and setting devPixelsPerPx=2. The checkboxes and radio buttons are the same size in both.
Native widgets are intentionally drawn as indicated by the GTK2 theme. If not, then a theme providing appropriate widgets for GTK2 apps on high dpi monitors would have extra large widgets in Gecko apps. However, I don't know whether any such themes exist and GTK2 themes are obsoleted by GTK3. GTK3 addresses this without needing a high dpi theme through its scaling factor, but bug 1144745 tracks handling that properly.
We're using GTK3, per comment 4 closing this out.
