Poor Quality Graphics


Hello, I have slackware 12.2 installed on my laptop. Its a little bit old, at about 3 years, though everything still works great! Once I setup my xorg.conf file and started x I had to put the resolution on the maximum setting (1280x800) and it looked great... on the desktop! When I load up a terminal, or firefox, or just any window, it seems to take up quite a lot of the screen. It looks like the windows that come up are in 800x600 or something strange! But one thing i've noticed, is in firefox, its just the toolbar and the program window that looks big, the pages look normal. I don't understand it! Can anyone offer any advice? Sorry if I left some important info out... just ask!
Thanks!

See system settings --> appearance--> fonts

(the DPI can cause such an effect)

or if it is kde-3.xx, then control centre -->etc

Ahhh! Thanks! The problem wasn't the DPI, but the font size! It was a little bit big, so I put that down and everything got nice and small! Thanks again!
