Bad DPI could certainly be a cause. However, xdpyinfo reports the
correct value (201) on both platforms.

We use a config file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d which specifies
DisplaySize - needed for the correct DPI value to be computed.

Sure, I'll try this.
Do I run these tests on F14 or F16?
(do you really mean Firefox 3.x?)
