This border appeared recently (weeks?) around three sides of the Windows Firefox Desktop version. It is annoying. Does not respond to any recommended fixes I have found on the same issue. Tried safe mode. Tried moving the task bar. Tried changing enlargement percentage. Tried rebooting after all of the above. Nothing working. Can't find a switch anywhere.

So I've just installed Firefox on a new device and the top part of the browser is not like I have it on my other browser. I'm used to having the tab bar aligned with a minimize, full screen and close option. However, it seems these options are on a windows bar of themselves above the tabs. I've shared a picture of the two elements on the same bar i got from my previous PC and the misaligned one on this PC. Thanks for any help you can give me.

I recently switched to Linux from Windows on my older laptop, and have noticed that videos played in Firefox are very choppy with a poor framerate when in full-screen. (Audio is fine.) It becomes smooth again when I remove full-screen mode. I was using this same laptop previously with an older version of FF (on Windows) and had no problems.

I tried other browsers and the stutter/choppiness is not present. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Firefox safe-mode did not solve the problem.

OS: Linux - Zorin OS 15.3 Lite Firefox: 85.0.1 (32-bit)

I am using the latest MX Linux Distro and Firefox 85. I am trying to setup sync with my phone so I can access all my bookmarks and such on my phone. It pops up with a QR code to scan in the Firefox on the phone but it would never scan. After a closer look at the QR code, it is cut off at the bottom and there seems to be nothing I can do to get around that. Endless searches make it out that I am the only one having this problem.

I don't know if this is a bug in Firefox, a bug in the interface, a bug somewhere else, or what. I just want to make it work. Thank you.
