I am a Mac user and using a second monitor display. When I move a Firefox window to the second display it doubles in size. I cannot figure out how to get it to display properly (as it displays on my original monitor). Please help.

Scaling is depend on the system O/S handling of dual monitors or spanning of display. Check your settings on how it handles second or expanded monitor settings.

It is not that. All my other program windows are scaled correctly when I move them to the second display. It is only Firefox that is doing this.

I’ve already used the about:config to set the main display to 2. If I do it again once I’ve dragged the window over to the second display then it rescales on my main monitor too which I don’t want. I just want the window to be the same scale on BOTH monitors.
