I have helvetica 14 as sans-seirf font, "use sans-serif for variable width" and "use variable width for plain text msgs" sat in the prefs. In the browser, fonts look like 14 pt. However, if I view a plain text msg, it is displayed in a fonts, that looks like 10 pt.
I think this is dupe of #28274.
miri, no, this (39037) bug has been caused by a DUP of bug 28274. I.e. 28274 has bascially been fixed, but in a way, which caused this (39037) one. But tnx for paying attention.
Has 28274 been fix? I think this happens without my changes. This is because <pre> or <tt> are used for plain text cases. We may change the code to use <div> in case variable font is selected for plain text view. For <pre wrap>, <div white-space: pre> can be used. Reassign to firstname.lastname@example.org (Ben Bucksch) owner of 28274.

> Has 28274 been fix? I thought, it had been fixed with your changes for bug 26182. Comments From email@example.com 2000-04-21 16:37 in bug 26182: > If above pref is "false" then you can apply mail/news specific font setting > by following prefs. > "mailnews.font.name.html" > "mailnews.font.size.html" > "mailnews.font.name.plain" > "mailnews.font.size.plain" [tags] I really see no need to add anything other than a div or span. We already do set pre or whatever is needed in the content-specific converters. I need to select the correct font family, but that's all. > Reassign to firstname.lastname@example.org (Ben Bucksch) owner of 28274. I'm not the owner of 28274. This is not my bug. Even if I knew how to do it, I would have no time to fix it. Sorry. Back to you, nhotta.

> I need to select the correct font family, but that's all. *You*, of course. If you have to use a tag in bug 26182, there's a bug anywhere, I think. Either in your code or in the converters (I could help with the latter).
>I'm not the owner of 28274. Okay, that was my misunderstanding. But bug 26182 was not for fixing the size issue. That problem has been existing before 26182 change. Reassign to rhp, please reassign to the owner of the plain text view code.

nhotta, you're right, this bug exists in M15. Sorry for blaming you. Dunno, where this small font comes from. If it's in the MIME plain text converter, tell me and I'll take care of it.
Seems to be fixed. Need further testing, though.
Seems to work. - rhp
