Difference 2: At the end of every page, Firefox, but not Internet Explorer, displays a broken image. Reproducible: Always
A difference doesn't mean that there is a bug in Firefox and where should there be a broken image ?
Reporter, please take a look at http://www.mozilla.org/quality/bug-writing-guidelines.html Also. Please only file one issue per report, so let's focus this report on difference 1. If you feel like it, you can file a new bug for difference 2. Adjusting summary accordingly. Old summary "2 differences from IE" FWIW: the page uses a <BASEFONT SIZE=4 face=verdana COLOR="#405C9E">. Can you provide a side-by-side screenshot of the differences in font size?
Summary: 2 differences from IE → Firefox shows page with smaller fonts than IE
Created attachment 207141 [details] Screen shots in IE and Firefox demonstrating smaller fonts in Firefox
In Firefox you can choose every font-family and font-size you like. Tools > Options > Content > Fonts & Colors > Advanced.
(In reply to comment #3) > Created an attachment (id=207141)  > Screen shots in IE and Firefox demonstrating smaller fonts in Firefox As comment 1 correctly states, it's hard to tell which browser gives the correct rendering. I've compared with Safari as well, and Firefox and Safari give me about equal results. So i'm tempted to call this a WFM/Invalid. Anyone disagreeing? As to your missing image, did you file a separate bug for it? Can you report the bug number here?
Thanks. However, I've checked "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, = instead of my selections above." Then, why doesn't Firefox display the = same as IE?

(In reply to comment #6) > Thanks. However, I've checked "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, = > instead of my selections above." Then, why doesn't Firefox display the = > same as IE? Well, from what i can tell it's actually IE that's not displaying them the same as Firefox or Safari on my Mac. Assuming you're the web master of these pages, have a look at this page: http://www.w3.org/QA/Tips/font-size and links therein. Good luck! PS: reopening, as the resolution "wontfix" means "The problem described is a bug which will never be fixed." and it is not established that this is actually a bug.

FYI: He is using the depricated <basefont> tag which isn't supported by Gecko (bug 3875).
