    Firefox buttons too big. Can't shrink.

    When I use Firefox in Ubuntu, the button spacing is much wider than the Window's setting. I share the same profile with my windows Firefox and there is a relatively big difference in the size and I want to know if there's a way to make the button/bar sizes smaller.

    I've already tried Layout.css.dpi in the configurations and that doesn't work.

    In my case , a theme change yesterday caused the buttons to become much larger in Firefox and Nautilus. My arrow buttons are twice the size but happen to like the change . Some Firefox themes (not personas) have fixed button sizes if you can find one you like.
    Infinite diversity in infinite combination.

    Do you know way to manually change the spacing, like in Chrome.css or Configuration Editor or whatnot? I've tried other themes but the spacing is the same. It's not so much the size of the buttons of the bothers me because changing the font can fix that but it's the large amount of spacing that separates each icon and toolbar.

    And this is only for Ubuntu, my Windows 7 Firefox spacing is narrow and I'm content with that. I'm guessing it has something to do with Nautilus rather than Firefox. I just like veiwing more content on my windows without maximizing the screen with F11 because I switch screens alot.

    Right click on the Firefox menu bar and select the option to "Customize", then at the bottom of the customize window select the option for "Small Icons".
