Was that picture resized? If you are running an 800x600 resolution, you might have other issues besides Firefox.

The "options" in Firefox is exactly where it was in Windows, under Edit and Preferences.

text in graphic seems to be ok.

try using open office writer and see if text still remains large - if it does - you may have screen resolution issues.
