I am looking for an easy way to get system fonts and sizes for
explicitly setting box sizes within a stack to dynamically accommodate
various native OS's. Are there any shortcuts or global variables
available within the Mozilla framework to reference this information?
I could probably create a piece of dummy text with no formatting and get
numbers from there, but I'm hoping for something more elegant. I also
don't want to redraw everything 3 times!
I could also use something similar for getting scrollbar widths. I have
a workaround for this, but it's not particularly elegant. Basically I
get the width of the content within the scrollbox, then scroll to the
end, then get the new start position of the scrolled content, on both
axes. A little addition and subtraction does the rest. It does the
job, but it ain't pretty.
