Firefox Calibri 16 & 17px font sizes.jpg

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:34.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/34.0
Build ID: 20141125180439

Steps to reproduce:

Increasing default font size from 12 to 16px in Tools\Options\Contents\Advanced in Windows 7 with Firefox versions 33 or 34.

Increasing default font size from 12 to 17px in Tools\Options\Contents\Advanced in Windows 7 with Firefox versions 33 or 34.



Actual results:

Inspector and font viewer add-ons report:

Font sizes set to 16 = is actually 13
Font sizes set to 17 = is actually 16


Expected results:

Set font sizes as indicated. In the attached image the font selected is Calibri, but DejaVu Sans has the same problem. I haven't tested Serif fonts.

Works for me with 2014-12-28-03-02-16-mozilla-central-firefox-37.0a1.ru.linux-x86_64 at https://www.debian.org/

I suppose you did load the page again before checking the new size indication.
Hi Ineuw ,


I didn't managed to reproduce this on the latest release(43.0.2) nor the latest Nightly(46.0a1). Any font size change I made, pages were displaying the correct size of the text.

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:43.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/43.0
Build ID: 20151221130713

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0
Build ID: 20151223030323

Can you please try to reproduce this on the latest release(43.0.2) and latest Nightly(46.0a1) and provide the results?
When doing this, you could create a new clean Firefox profile, or maybe test in safe mode, as some of this issues may be caused by third party installed addons or custom settings(https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems).


Thanks,
Paul.

I agree with the closing because this issue didn't come up again in later versions of FF. I am always using beta versions, 

To note, I never received any notices about the comments written above. If this issue comes up again, I will open a new bug report with additional info. Thank you.
