Package: chromium
Version: 35.0.1916.114-1
Severity: minor
Tags: patch

Dear Maintainer,

Since the upgrade to Chromium 35, the font size used to display the
URL in the address bar is disproportionately large compared to tab
titles and toolbar icons. The attached images show the normal font
size in Chromium 34 and the overlarge font size in Chromium 35.
Note the same issue has been reported by users of Arch Linux:


The following patch resolves the issue:
