FIle-picker window on one of my machines is much larger than my display

The file-picker (when I choose any file related operation such as Open File, Save As, etc) on just one of my machines is far larger than my desktop size (and the window appears not to be resizable).

When I trigger any such operation I'm presented with what looks like a blank screen as I a shown part of the vast unused area of this oversized window. If I force my wm to allow me to move the window I can use the file picker with a lot of painful repeated scrolling around but otherwise it's unusable.

Any idea why firefox might be doing this or where it might have cached the file picker size? There doesn't appear to be anything related in about:config or userprefs.js

Starting up in trubleshooting mode doesn't have any effect on this.

Are you able to use the resize mechanism for file pickers belonging to other applications?

Yes, other file pickers are resizeable. The file picker from the flatpak version is resizeable.

However - progress! I added a bunch of wm tweaks specific to the file picker and managed to get it resized, and this resize seems to have stuck.

It did fight me every step of the way - refused to resize _smaller_ until I manually resized the _internal_ columns of the file picker, and even then I had to first slightly resize _bigger_ and then change direction so I was resizing _smaller_ in the same operation.

But I got there in the end.

FWIW a bit of STFW indicates this may be a gtk problem, but for me firefox is the one thing that triggers it.
