Set font size with pixels

Hello experts,

The question of the day is:  Is there a way to prevent Firefox from resizing my "px" precise fonts?  By that I mean, in IE you can increase/decrease font sizes using the "em" measurement.  However, when you use "px", you cannot resize them.  For portions of my design i must use pixel precise fonts.  Problem solved with IE, I just use "px" for my font sizes that cannot change.  HOWEVER, firefox still resizes them.  So how can I enfoce the font size without using images?  Possible?

In the code below, only Paragraph 1 is resized when I change the "browser" font size.  In firefox, all 3 change.  How to get Firefox to behave like IE?
<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
.p1{font-size:1em;}
.p2{font-size:12px;}
.p3{font-size:14px;}
</style>
</head>
<body>
 
<p class="p1">Paragraph 1</p>
<p class="p2">Paragraph 2</p>
<p class="p3">Paragraph 3</p>
 
</body>
</html>

This is not possible... And setting font size in pixels won't help you in IE 7 either.

You can not. Being able to change the font-size is a basic usability feature of web browsers.

I recommend you learn how to make your designs more flexible. If you showed it to me, I just might be able to give you some suggestions.

Usage of percent values for fonts.

<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
.p1{font-size:40%;}
.p2{font-size:120%;}
.p3{font-size:140%;}
</style>
</head>
<body>
 
<p class="p1">Paragraph 1</p>
<p class="p2">Paragraph 2</p>
<p class="p3">Paragraph 3</p>
