Hi! I’m running a laptop whose main display in 1920x1080, and I have a second monitor attached which is 3840x2160. I’ve set the second monitor to 125% scaling using the Settings / Display control panel, and haven’t messed with the gnome settings much besides that.
Everything is basically working great but there’s one issue that is a constant annoyance. When I open a new Firefox window on the larger monitor it is always too short - I haven’t measured it, but I’m guessing it’s 1080 pixels high so as to be able to fit comfortably on either screen. Anyways, the upshot is that every time I open a new window I then have to drag the bottom edge down so it’s a reasonable size for that monitor.
This would be annoying enough on its own, but in addition, whenever gnome locks the screen due to inactivity, every Firefox window on both monitors shrinks in height so it is 1080 pixels high, so after unlocking I need to go back through every Firefox windows and resize it.
This happens in both Firefox 92.0.1 and in Thunderbird 91.1.1. I haven’t seen the same behavior from Chrome or any other X application. Settings / About shows Gnome version 40.4.0, windowing system “Wayland”.
I’ve read the HiDPI and Firefox pages in the Arch wiki but didn’t see any mention of this, and couldn’t find anything in an initial search of the Firefox bugzilla. Anyone else seeing this?
