Firefox on Linux/ Wayland/ Sway is haveing trouble scaling on multiple screens when the screens have different scaling ratios

Firefox versions 70-74, developer version and stable; Ubuntu 19.10 with Wayland/ Sway; Internal Monitor 3000x2000 with scaling ratio 2.0 + External Monitor 1920x1080 with scaling ratio 1.0
Ever since version 70 I noticed that Firefox would on first start scale either according to the external or internal monitor, and be perfectly workable on that one. But when moving it to the other monitor/ opening a new window on the other monitor it would not scale properly, but render according to the scaling factor of the other monitor. So, e.g. when moving from the internal to the external screen it would only render to the top left quarter of the screen, while the application was actually being the right size. At the same time the input mapping was according to the actual window dimensions, and not according to the visual rendering of Firefox. This would also happen the other way round, with Firefox then only rendering the top left part of the web page to the entire screen.
You can see this well on the attached screenshot, but notice that sway is a tiling window manager, so Firefox should actually be exactly the same size as the terminal next to it. Firefox also renders like this when the scaling factor was changed at run time, so the issue seems to me that Firefox on Wayland checks the scaling factor on startup just once globally and does not realize when it was changed or that it can be different on different monitors.

When I ask my webmail to print an email, the dialogue window pops us as expected. In that window I expect a small top bar with a close (cross) and print (printer) icons, as shown in the first image added (obtained with Linux Ubuntu 18.04, Firefox 71).
Instead, in a computer with Linux Ubuntu 14.04 and Firefox 66, I get gigantic icons, as wide as the page width, as shown in the second image added. This is certainly an issue when I want to print to file; I have not tried and sent the job to a printer since I am not interested in that use at this moment. It used to work fine for years until a certain point, but I cannot pinpoint when it went wrong and the possible whys. Note that the body of the mail is formatted regularly, and that also the icons at the bottom (say, an attachment) are magnified disproportionately.
There is an archived post in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1176032 that reports a similar problem. However, the diagnose is different. The large icon is not an issue of yahoo mail on two counts: 1) the big X and printer icons are supposed to be there, and the issue is that they are magnified without a reason; 2) the problem does not arise with the same webmail service in other computers. I suspect that it must be some local setting of Firefox that has been changed in a mistake?
Any ideas on fixes and workarounds? Thanks for helping out

I've seen a few other posts on this problem, but none of them seem to direct me on how to actually solve it. Recently many machines in my environment have lost most Application Content Types. Usually defaulting to only IRC, IRCS, and MAILTO; nothing else. A few applications have popped into the FF install on my PC, but I can't figure out how to force an app in there. I've seen a post that details how to add something manually, but I am not exactly keen on manually adding everything to a few dozen machines. I've been pushing my end users to use Chrome for the time being, something I'd rather not do. Any help would be appreciated.

I tried contacting McAfee support and they suggested reinstalling the extension but I don't want to do that just yet. If you already have the extension perhaps you can see if you have the issue? https://marsbase.org/
I'm not sure whose responsible firefox or mcafee?
I've also asked https://superuser.com/q/1525936/627894 here and reported the extension to firefox.
So can anyone with McAfee WebAdvisor replicate this issue so I can forward this onto McAfee support?
