Firefox Window Resizing when moving to another Screen, when there is differing DPI scales

Hi,

I have a multi screen setup with my desktop, my main is 1440p(with 125% dpi scaling) and the others are 1080p(with 100% dpi scaling), I prefer it this way as text is displayed at a more consistent size between all screens.

However every time I move a Firefox window to another screen it will resize to fit within that screen, even when it would a have fitted fine as it was before the move.

This is of great inconvenience to me as it keeps on happening until the window size is unreasonably small...

I feel there is obviously a feature within Firefox that is causing this inconvenient behavior, as it does not happen to other software UIs, See this https://youtu.be/Hu61IGSrsKI

So Is there any way to prevent that behavior? , As I have not seen any options in settings that refer to it, nor have other resources online been informative.

Notes: I'm on windows 11 and I'm up to date, Yes I'm using some UI modes to make it look like Win10 but disabling them does not change this behavior Multi screen snap feature is disabled, Remember this is not happening to other UI windows on my system. Yes if I turn off the increased DPI scaling on my main screen it no longer happens, but if other UIs work fine why not Firefox, why should my preferences have to change to suit... :)

Any tips on this would be greatly appreciated

Hi,

when I open Firefox with my default page (https://mail.google.com/...) I always get two queries for entering a password. But indeed I do not have saved any password for this site. Thus I also cannot find an entry in the login/password list.

Thus I simply cancel the queries and everything works fine.

So why do I get the nasty queries and how can I remove them?

Thanks

Every morning I start up Firefox and within 30 minutes of it starting it seems to at some point start to stop working. I can open new tabs, but URLs will not load. Tabs that already have pages loaded won't load new pages. Basically, the UI works but the browser can't load anything.

I have to close Firefox, and then when I start it up again. I have to kill the last process that didn't close cleanly.

After this, Firefox will work for the rest of the day without issue. The next day the same thing happens.

I tried reinstalling Firefox, and I know it is updated to the latest version. I haven't found any issues described like this while looking for help on this, so wondering what to do about this, short of moving to Chrome on this computer.

At some point last year, every website started asking me to allow cookies on every visit. I couldn't see how to make Firefox more easy-going back then but now I've decided I don't need the protection since I'm using uBlock and NoScript anyway.

I have gone through the support forum answers to other people and I have all my settings configured to allow cookies and not delete them on FF restarts, custom blocking with no checkboxes checked, but still I see these cookie permissions questions all the time. What can I do?

As the years go by I still love Firefox--its response speed and its many features. But it is getting to the point where almost every new order for a product I place with a new company fails because their website only works properly with Chrome. I'm not being negative here--this is my actual experience. And LastPass works better with Chrome than with Firefox, although I can't remember specifics at the moment.

I wonder if there is a specific reason for this general increase in problems, such as due to how I've customized my Firefox, or perhaps that Firefox is adhering too closely to browser standards, or something else. I don't even know if this vague but real problem is caused by me somehow, or is endemic to Firefox.

So, I'm posting this just in case someone else has encountered the same problems.

There is no particular error message to report. It's just that an increasing number of website forms are quietly failing to log me in, or to accept an order, or something similar. Just quiet failures that don't happen when I try the same thing in Chrome.

Important: I don't have ANY problems with Firefox with websites and apps that I myself have created. All Firefox languages--HTML, CSS, JavaScript--work perfectly for me.

I'd appreciate any feedback from others, as I really, really want to keep Firefox as my regular browser.

After an upgrade about 6-9 mths ago (and yet continuing), my Firefox browser when 1st initiated *(no URL accessed yet) will present (at first 2 boxes) up to 4 master password boxes.

Entering the PW into one of them does not seem to allow me consistent access to PW use ability.

I have found clicking the "X" on all of them then continuing to a site that calls for a PW then brings up 1 M Password box, and "normal" operation seems to ensue.

No relevant crashing or odd screen presentation seems to be associated.

Any fix or concern about malicious intent?

Not occurring on my Android associated w/same F.Fox account, but it has occurred on another desktop, but seemed to go away .. (hmm will need to check if still occurring there)

During the past two weeks, I added annotations to three PDF files using Firefox, saving the file each time I added an annotation. After Firefox updated to v109.0 on a Win10 computer, I discovered that the annotations were gone in the first 2 PDFs. Does anyone have any insights into what happened and how to recover the annotations? I did try copying the PDFs to a computer that was running Firefox v108.0.2, but the annotations were still not visible.

I have been using firefox for several years. Have my bookmark icon on the menu bar on the right hand top. The drop down list of bookmark appear on the right and submenus appear on the left of the drop down list. Recently one folder began showing the sublistings on the right side, it used to display them on the left. All of the rest are displayed on the left side.

The titles of these bookmarks displayed on the right are some of the shortest in length.

Is there a way to set this back to the left side?

I've mentioned this before but never have found good answers or feedback. Too often (well more than I'd like) I've closed Firefox and when I come back (start up Firefox again) my previous Tabs are lost. And, there is no option to restore previous session, nor closed tabs. Firefox keeps history, why can't it keep a history of previous tabs. And, why does it frequently not provide: Restore previous session. It seems that keeping a history previous tabs for a period of time isn't that difficult. Please enlighten me. This has happened to me (losing the previous tabs) more than care to remember.
