I've been using Gnome now for quite a while and all works well, but I want to move to something a little faster like Fluxbox but there is one thing holding me back - the font size in Mozilla Thunderbird is just too big in Fluxbox (and blackbox, fvwm2, kde, twm, wmaker) but is adjustable and not too big in Gnome and XFCE.
1. Why is this?
2. How can I adjust this font issue in the Fluxbox and the other WMs?
3. Is XFCE a faster WM compared to Gnome and more recommend IYHO?
BTW, I'm already using gtk-theme-switch-2.0.0rc2.tar.gz to size all my GTK fonts and it's working great for GAIM among other things - just not Thunderbird!
