User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0 Iceweasel/29.0.1 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140524000300

Steps to reproduce:

I am using a 160 dpi 3860x2160 monitor and Debian Jessie with Kernel 3.15.0 x86_64.
The dpi setting of the X11 system is 160 dpi (set by xrandr).
In preferences display I chose
Monospace: monospace 24
For message display I chose
Message Body: As Plain Text


Actual results:

The message body is displayed as 12px making it illegible.


Expected results:

Plain text display should use the monospace font given in the preferences.

The displayed font size should reflect the dpi setting of the system. Hence it should not be necessary to set a larger font.
