    Default Can't change font, font size FIrefox 3.6.8

    I have a problem. I can't change fonts in Firefox preferences (Content). Anybody has a similar or same problem?

    My OS is openSUSE 11.3, KDE 4.4.4. release 8.

    Any type and size of font I use, nothing happens. It's still same font which I choose for the first time I've started Firefox afer installing openSUSE 11.3.

    So go to Menu / Personnel Settings / Application Appearance / GTK Styles and Fonts. Once you select the font for KDE, use the GTK setting to use the same settings or something else for Firefox.

    I've tried. There are 2 options. Neither make changes to fonts in Firefox. Every time when I change settings, I restart application. Problem still persists.

    Does changing whether or not webpages may choose their own fonts make things better? Either in FF preference dialog ('Content' > 'Advanced'), or in about:config > "browser.display.use_document_fonts".

    It's OK now. I turned off option "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above" and now it works. Thank You.
