Windows 7 text setting gone suddenly tiny

After restarting Windows 7 (SP 1) today, my chosen Small text setting (100% at 100 dpi on a 1920 x 1200 resolution) had been replaced by Medium (125%). Text everywhere looked huge. I switched back to Small, but now a lot of my system text (like title bar text
and context menu text
) is extremely small, much smaller than before, and some other text, like the listing of subject headings in my Thunderbird email client and the tab text in Firefox, is also incredibly small. How to get back to my original Small appearance?

I'm sitting at Small resolution right now. I've checked and my dpi is still at 100. I've tried changing the size of the title bar text and other system elements in Window Color and Appearance, but this doesn't help with Firefox and Thunderbird. What else can I try?
