Bug 23104: Add a default line height compensation
Many fonts have issues with their vertical metrics. they are used to influence the height of ascenders and depth of descenders. Gecko uses it to calculate the line height (font height + ascender + descender), however because of that idiosyncratic behavior across multiple operating systems, it can be used to identify the user's OS. The solution proposed in the patch uses a default factor to be multiplied with the font size, simulating the concept of ascender and descender. This way all operating systems will have the same line height only and only if the frame is outside the chrome.
