Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7
Build Identifier: http://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-1.5rc3&os=win&lang=en-US

em units render smaller than supposed to. Previous versions of Firefox (including 1.0.7) are correct, as is Safari.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build a webpage using em's instead of a fixed unit
2. View in Firefox 1.0.7 or Safari
3. View in Firefox 1.5

Actual Results:  
The webpage appeared smaller in Firefox 1.5 than in Firefox 1.0.7 and Safari.

Expected Results:  
The webpage should render the same size as in Firefox 1.0.7 and Safari

I installed Thunderbird and Firefox (1.5) betas at the same time. Re-installing both 1.0.7 versions did not correct the problem.

You have a example site where you see the problem? http://style.cleverchimp.com/font_size/scale/ looks the same for me with 1.7 and 1.8 branch.
