Linux build 2000-09-20-08.  In the prefs, there is no drop-down box for the
fixed-width font size.  This only happens with the Classic theme.  To reproduce,
open edit->prefs->fonts.
Probable easy fix for nsbeta3.  I don't think it's a XUL problem since this
works in modern.  Also I was the last person to touch pref-fonts.xul and I know
I tested both skins right after the commit went through.
Keywords: classic, nsbeta3
see this also on the commercial bits.

patty, could you see if this occurs for you in classic on mac and windows?
The widget seems to come back if you actually bother changing the fixed-width
font face.
Marking this one plus ...

I'm running linux right now and 
tried switching to classic skin and
loading it.   I see a size widget for fixed width fonts.
Marking works for me unless i can get a reproducable testcase.
I've tested it on two linux machines.

Heisenbugs are not the same thing as worksforme.  I'm still seeing this in
latest linux nightlies.  Your QA contact can reproduce, why don't you get
together and chat?  Reopening.

I see this problem on Win98 2000092111.
yep, still happening for me using the classic skin on linux 2000.09.22.08 [opt
comm bits].

oops, i guess i forgot to actually cc patty here... doing so now.
matt and i seem to have found a workaround for this:

1. open Prefs dialog.
2. resize it so that it is much bigger.
3. dismiss the dialog (use the mouse tho' or you'll run into bug 53838).
4. bring up Prefs again --> the fontsize droplist is now displayed; persists,
too, even after resizing the dialog to a smaller size.
Hi Sarah,
