 A noticeable increase in the font size of non-heading text, as well as
 text used in buttons in the WP admin was introduced in WP 3.2.1.

 This occurs after upgrading from WP 3.2 to WP 3.2.1 in Firefox 5.0 under
 Ubuntu 11.04. Non-heading text appears larger than in 3.2. Heading text
 appears to be the same size. Note: the system has Arial installed as this
 is a new issue from

 Viewing the same WP 3.2.1 admin in Chrome (12.0.742.112) displays text at
 the correct size, as it was pre WP 3.2.1. Side by side comparison shows
 the non-heading text is larger in Firefox 5.

 Affected text includes all non-heading text (button and UI text, menu
 text, as well as labels and supporting text).
