Default huge fonts in nvidia-settings and firefox?

I have been using 260.19.21 for awhile on my Atom+ION system using an analog VGA 1280x1024 monitor. I just purchased a 1920x1080 TV that I would like to use as my new monitor. I connected the TV to the PC using HDMI, disconnected the old VGA monitor, and ran nvidia-xconfig and restarted X. Well.... it mostly works, my desktop is now 1920x1080, full screen mplayer w/ VDPAU is awesome, but many applications are now running with giganic fonts, even the menus are huge. For example, nvidia-settings is now almost a full screen application, the fonts are massive, and it still doesn't all fit into one window. Any ideas as to what in the heck is going on? Thank you in advance. FWIW, I am using a very minimalistic Arch Linux setup with Blackbox as my window manager.

I recently ran into the same problem, in kde systemsettings I changed fonts to force 96dpi and everything looked normal again.

For GTK applications (Firefox, Thunderbird, Nvidia-Settings, etc) under KDE you can create a file $HOME/.gtkrc-2.0

For example:
style "user-font" {
   font_name = "Liberation Sans 8"

widget_class "*" style "user-font"

gtk-font-name="Liberation Sans 8"
