Edit font preview in preferences uses a small font size for monospace
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points


At least in Firefox the preview of the edit font in the preferences (e.g. is smaller than usual for monospace, for me the preview has 10.5px, while on editing pages 12px is used (12.3px in NWE).
As mediawiki.editfont.css has just

.mw-editfont-monospace {
  font-family: monospace;
} explains why the font is too small in the preferences, though it remains a mystery for me why it has a good size on edit pages. Anyway, the size on edit pages should be kept, and the size in the preferences be increased to match it.
