I recently installed Ubuntu and noticed that things look very large compared to Windows. My resolution is 1280x1024 and while that was enough space for me the last time I used Ubuntu, it doesn't seem like I have a lot of space. I used the same resolution in Windows, and yet I had much more space in programs like Firefox. For example, my bookmarks list would be fully visible on Windows, but on Ubuntu, I have to scroll down to see the rest of them.
I think it may be because the fonts in the toolbar menus are too large, but I'm not sure how to change them. Can anyone help me with this?
Here's a screenshot.
