    Font-size difference Firefox 2 / 3

    After having searched around I cannot find anything that explains the difference I have found in one of my sites between FF2 and FF3. The search button in the header has a text size that works well across all browsers and OSs that I have tested on until I got Firefox 3. Now my search button is larger than the text input field by a good 10 pixels or so. From a design point of view this looks bad.

    I have tried setting the font size in ems, percentage, etc. but no luck, it's just always a good bit larger in FF3 than in Safari, FF2, and even our best friend IE. Has anyone else delt with this issue? I know there has to be some way to equalize it, and text sizes don't seem to be varying in any other places on the site.

    I don't know what the policy is here about posting links so I will hold off on that for now. Thanks for any insight on this.

    Check the default font size setting in FF preferences - this is normally 16px, but you can set it to whatever you want.
