summary says it all -- both netscape and mozilla let you set
all the css family defaults... phoenix is incomplete in this respect.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enter preferences fonts dialog
2. note missing scroll box zones
to see the scroll box selectors for the cursive and fantasy families
Waiting for developer's review.
I suggest WONTFIX.
I think they did this to save space for COLORS
Just noticed that the fantasy font default selects the first in alpha
order. this is unfortunate in my case as i just installed a new package
of fonts and one of them was Algerian .....
Since there is no option to change fantasy font choice, at least
the control freaks should select one that uses latin character set
so at least the text is readable ....
use about:config :) creating "font.name.fantasy.x-western" with the value of the
font name you want should do the trick. The fantasy prefs don't even exist in
my version of Firebird, so I'm guessing the pref was actually stripped out.
Therefore with no default, it seems that Mozilla will pick the first font in
your fonts directory.
As for the bug, since Ben intentionally removed it from the UI and it can still
be manually configured for those who need it, this should be WONTFIX.
(If I'm wrong on this and the pref doesn't even work, please reopen this bug.)
ok -- i will try to do this ---
i am interested in the comment that ben removed it from the UI.
do you mean that at one time it WAS configuarble from the browser?
Even though few would want to do it there should be a gui mechanism.
using the method you describe harks back to the days of
msDos and mysterious incantations and knowledge by the wizard
to get things done .... basic choice selections of fonts and colors
should be left to user (with easy methods) if he chooses and
defaulting to appropriate values just in case he doesn't....
neither is done in this situation... Just a SURFER view...
I agree with john russell: the default is wrong, and the user can't fix it
without looking thru bugzilla. That sound like a bug to me, and I don't
understand how "wontfix" is a sensible response.
These parameters (Cursive and Fantasy) are configurable in Mozilla, but not Firefox, and I currently get inconsistent results (different fonts) wherever Fantasy is specified. Sometimes I'll get a page with one font, sometimes with another.

Why is this a WONTFIX?
