On Tools->Options->Fonts, "Display Resolution", should default to the 
setting in the native system's GUI.  

Having to set DPI in each GUI application is counter productive to the idea of 
setting it once in the GUI (settable in either Windows or X).

Assuming all of the widgets/boxes, etc in the T-bird/F-Fox GUI are already 
sized appropriately for the native DPI, this wouldn't be a bug.  So I'm filing 
this as a RFE.  :-)

still a bug, product doesn't read _current_ native resolution which
it should use by _default_ (unless overridden).
Version: version 1.0.6 (20050716)
