Firefox Screenshots not scaling correctly when doing partial screen captures

Hello, I have searched for an answer to this and didn't find one so I am posting. If this has been answered, kindly post the link to the solution :)

The problem is with Firefox screenshots. Full page shots are working fine, but "Save Visible" and custom selections using the outlining tool are scaling at 71% instead of 100%. So, I'm only getting some of what I want.

How do I fix this? I didn't see anything in config about this.

Pic is an example of what I'm talking about.

This might be a new thing in Firefox 86:

If you use the privacy.resistFingerprinting feature, then Firefox Screenshot has a problem properly calculating the size of the node when it is zoomed, either due to page zoom or as a result of applying system-level scaling.

This could be related to changes to keep the increased zoom level; previously, screenshots were always at "100%" regardless of your adjustments to the zoom level.
