No problem with "Preferences" dialog box in Mozilla 1.2.1 here.

Here is System information string from "System Properties" dialog box:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 1

Here is a complete list of my installed WinXP hotfixes:

Updates for IE6:
SP1; Q324929

I'm confused: I remember that immediately after XP installation
I had problems with dialog boxes in Exodus (a Jabber client) - with
120 DPI. Now I'm using 103 DPI and Exodus looks ok.

My friend tested setup.exe with XP at 144 DPI and he is able
to reproduce tis bug (WinXP w/o SP1 and w/o any updates).
