resize menu and extension boxes
When I'm using FF in my laptop (extended monitor view), the boxes/panes for the MENU and extensions are showing in a minimized format (i.e. the MENU will show only > Sign in to Sync and > Content Blocking - 2 rows only), so I have to scroll down to see the other options.
If I move FF to one of the 24' Monitors, the MENU open as a whole (from > Sign in to Sync to > Exit). Even my extensions like dark Reader will show the entire box when displayed in the monitor.
I noticed that my laptop is using a display scale of 125% by default, but If I change it to 100%, it will show the MENU and other extension boxes as a whole. The problem is that 100% is hard to work/read.
Is there a config to stop the resizing of the MENU and the extension panes?
Info: Lenovo T470 - resolution 1920 1080 (Scale and Layout 125%) Monitor HP V244h - resolution 1920 x 1080 (Scale and Layout 100%)

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.
- Options/Preferences -> General: Performance
remove checkmark: [ ] "Use recommended performance settings"
remove checkmark: [ ] "Use hardware acceleration when available"
Close and restart Firefox after modifying the setting for changes to take effect.
I had the hardware acceleration disabled before. I checked and restarted the browser today, but still showing the same issue in my laptop screen.
I made an additional test and it seems to be related to the extended screen. If I disconnect the monitors (connected via USB - HumanScale), I can see the full MENU in my laptop screen. When I plug it back, the MENU window gets minimized again.
