xorg config file issues with dual monitors and oddly large fonts


I have been working on getting Dual Monitors working on xorg inside OpenSUSE 9.3.

I have had dual monitors working fine on other distribituions. I can get both monitors to work, but when I do, the menus inside FIrefox (likeFile, Edit, View) are HUGE, like probably a 24 point font. When I uncomment a UseModes line from the Montior section of my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, the Firefox issues are resolved, but now only one monitor works.

Both monitors are the same.

Here is my xorg.conf with both monitor working and odd Firefox problems. I haven't noticed Large fonts for other applications, (I check Konquer, Konsole, and Yast). My thinking is that a Modeline statement is messing this up, but I am not certain.

Code:
