I don't know why ... I have been having similar troubles for quite
awhile. I've found that using the Gnome-AA GDM session to get
antialiased fonts is part of the cause in the giant XUL widget problem.
If I switch back to a normal session, the widgets go back to a normal
size. All the Gnome-AA session does is set LD_PRELOAD to get libgdkxft0
available to GTK. And oddly enough, unsetting LD_PRELOAD and starting
Mozilla doesn't fix the problem.
So give that a shot if you're using that GDM session. It might give
you a usable browser again, even at the loss of antialiased fonts.
