From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i586; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010111 BuildID: 2001011118 For a couple of days all <input>-fields in any web page have been too high. Their height is something like two rows. I have removed and reinstalled mozilla, but it hasn't helped. Also changing font size doesn't help. There is too much empty space under the letters. However, the text cursor is of a size that is correct to the size of the input box. Textarea-fields are also a little bit problematic, the same problem applies also there - just in a different form. In textareas when clicking into the area, the cursor is of a correct size (=something like the size of the letters), but after typing anything, the cursor resizes to be bigger - actually almost double. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
probably a font or font metrics issue - reassigning
Can you tell us which theme you are using? Modern has changed not long ago to use system fonts, so it may due to your system fonts. Also since nobody else has reported this yet, you might want to see if using userChrome.css as described in http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html helps. Thanks, Fabian. Btw : Couple of days = two days, or more like one week?
I have tried both schemes - the problem remains the same. However, using userChrome.css was a good idea. When using the input-field example where for example font-family is changed to clean and size to 13, the input field came out with correct size. However, when changing the font to 'sans-serif', for example, the problem reappeared. As you can see in the example I attached, the same problem seems to come out with all form fields - select-lists have also a bit too much space under the text. 'Couple of days' means something like two days - I'm not exactly sure.
Marking NEW as per reporters comments.
This is the problem with TrueType fonts.
