Everything is very big. The navigation buttons, bookmark toolbar
icons, etc are all huge. For any new web page that is opened the
entire content is also huge. Zooming out two or three times gets the
web page down to a decent readable size.

I'd say that the problem is with DPI detection for firefox. Not other
applications seem to be affected. The only exception is that gnome
Appearance/Theme/Customize/Icons shows some big/blurry icons for
Crystal SVG and Slick Icons.

xdpyinfo says

screen #0:
  dimensions:    1920x1200 pixels (300x230 millimeters)
  resolution:    163x133 dots per inch
