Build ID: 2011110500



Actual results:

Radio buttons and checkboxes are rendered way too big.

My machine is an openSUSE 11.4 with KDE 4. My question now is, what is it exactly that affects the rendering of form elements in general. Who has the control, firefox or my settings within KDE?

So basically I just want to know where I can change influence the appearance of those really big radio buttons.

gnome 3

Well, I switched to gnome 3 recently, but it's still the same. The screenshot is from cw-mobile.de, a site I found per chance. You can see that all form elements are too big, because on windows everything looks neat.

So it doesn't to do with the desktop environment itself I guess. But it's the same machine, still OpenSUSE 11.4.

Is this still happening with Firefox 10.0.1?

Did you change the default font in Firefox?

Did you change the Zoom level?

Still the same in Firefox 10.0.1. 

I never touched the default Firefox font. Should I? Is there a way to tweak the form elements in about:config?

While zooming I noticed, that everything changes in size, but not the radio and check buttons. They all stay the same size in every zoom level. This happens on linux AND on windows. Shouldn't they adopt to the zoom level?

If you go in the menu bar, select "View" then "Zoom", is "Zoom text only" checked? If it is, try again with it unchecked?

That option wasn't checked, but I tried out both. It's still the same.
