Re: Firefox and Epiphany crash after today's updates

One wouldn't think so, but exactly which apps permit selection of and
actually use sizes specified in fractional pt? NAICT, all GUI web browsers
round all font sizes to pixel integer multiples regardless of what they seem
to calculate to.

The switch regarding mainstream mozilla apps is ancient history, and attempts
to reverse it via mozilla's bugzilla have been wontfixed.
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=414427 seems more likely to
stand a chance of a fix, and is probably overdue. I'm surprised it hasn't
been marked a dupe of a much older bug.
