menu font size in firefox

Poster: aeroflight

I have the following in menu_data.js

fontfamily="Verdana, Tahoma, Arial";

This works well in IE and Chrome, but in Firefox the font is noticeably larger than in the other two browsers. This means that there is less space for an additional menu item at the end of the row.

Is it possible to get Firefox to show the same font size as IE and Chrome?

Thanks for your help,

As far as I know the only way to make sure that the font is the same all browsers would be to set it using css, which you can do with the menu. You would also need to set the !important in the css if you want to make sure it doesn't change. Remember that all browsers must be designed for assessibility, so anyone with bad eyesight must be able to set their own font sizes. Also, other than IE browsers seem to have that set automatically, rather than have the person actually have to set assessibility requirement like IE does. What is your setting on FF? When I went with mine, though I admit I have an older browser, 3.5 I think, it looks the same to me, but my text size setting is normal.
