Description Mike Kaganski 2019-08-15 12:59:50 UTC
A follow-up for bug 99891: after the latter was fixed, do the same with help packages installer.

Citing Adolfo Jayme from bug 99891 comment #0:
> The MSI installer still uses Tahoma 8 (Windows 2000/XP) as its UI font.
> Since Vista, the platform’s UI font is Segoe UI 9. The installer should
> match that.
> (At this point we should not be concerned about XP: this font is not
> installed by default in that platform, but any user who at some point
> installed a Windows Live application should have it... But the main point
> is, XP has reached end of life!)
