The cursor is very small when installed via snap

Posted

The cursor (mouse pointer) is very small when I install Firefox as a snap. The deb works fine. I'm assuming this has something to do with snap theming, but is there any workaround?

I think that the size of the mouse pointer would be taken from the operating system (Linux in your case).

Does it has effect if you modify layout.css.devPixelsPerPx on the about:config page?

You can set layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1.0 (default is -1) on the about:config page. Adjust its value in 0.1 or 0.05 steps (1.1 or 0.9) until icons or text looks right. Modifying layout.css.devPixelsPerPx affects user interface and web pages (global zoom).

Yes normally the mouse pointer would be taken from the OS, but for some reason it's not respected when Firefox is installed as a snap. The deb works fine. I know there are theming issues with snaps, so I'm assuming this is related to that.

I tried changing the devPixelsPerPx but it doesn't seem to have an affect. The text and icons are the correct size. It's just the mouse pointer that is small.
