Mozilla menu font..

How on earth do i change it??

I've downloaded themes and some of them seem to reduce its size, but still dont look like the screenshots from the themes page.. they're usually much larger.. is there any way to directly change the size of the font (File, Edit, View, Go, Bookmarks etc etc etc) rather than changing the whole theme?

this is what it looks like at the moment..

Look at $HOME/.mozilla/default/<something>/chrome/

Create a file userChrome.css with this inside :

@namespace url(""); /* set default namespace to XUL */

* {
font-family: Verdana !important

* {
font-size: 10pt !important
Change Verdana font to whatever you want.
