No cursor change on Google Sheets block selection to move

more options

In Mozilla Firefox for Linux (Mint) there is no cursor transition when hovering over the edges of the Google Sheet cells range selection, eg in order to move it to other location. It makes this simple process very "arbitrary" and difficult, so I need to use copy paste instead.

Off course this is happening only in FFX, other browser show default behaviors - transitioning cursor to palm handle for easy cell range selection pick up and manipulation. Thus I find this being a FFX specific bug, and I wonder if anyone has the similar experience and if there is a solution?
