Thunderbird's fonts and symbols are huge on hidpi display


I use Fedora 24 with default Gnome on a notebook with a 2560*1440 screen. I installed gnome-tweak-tools for setting scaling fonts to 1.0.

Firefox seems to read this value and the everything there appears as small as desired. But nothing changed for Thunderbird. When you google this you often find that you can tweak Thunderbird's behaviour by adjusting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in about:config. But this only affects the font inside the Mail and the symbols. The lisf of folders and the list of mails in this folder are still quite huge. Does somebody know a way to tell Thunderbird that it should just appear smaller?
