    firefox menu bars too big?


    in the two screenshots below, the firefox menu bar on suse seems so big, while the firefox menu bar on the xp seems just fine. how do i change the menu bar size for firefox in suse? i have went to fonts in the suse control center and tried to configure the fonts, but changing those fonts do not affect the menu bar on firefox. ive looked through the firefox options but i can't seem to find a way to make the firefox on suse look like the one on xp.

    Why not changing the theme? I have a small screen and therefore replaced the default theme by "modern pinball".

    Decrease the GTK font size with gnome-font-properties.

    For the future, PNG>GIF. I got the filesize of the XP shot down 65% with convert (from ImageMagic) then PNGCrush.

    Code:
    if (you have GNOME) then
         Use the command gnome-font-properties to change GTK's fonts.
    else
         Try editing ~/.gtkrc-2.0 manually.
    endif

    i don't have .gtkrc-2.0, but i do have something close .gtk_qt_engine_rc. is that it? i don't think that's it because i don't see anything relating to fonts in that.

    Try using kcmshell kcmgtk to change the GTK font. If that doesn't work, cat ~/.gtk_qt_engine_rc|grep font, to search if it contains any font data. If that gives any output, try manually editing ~/.gtk_qt_engine_rc.

    I've also been looking for a non-gnome-desktop way to change the default gtk fonts ... I'm running e16 but I use quite a few gnome apps -- and I get annoying unicode bloopers in things like yelp and gnochm.

    My google attempts haven't done me much good so far.
