Some popups are also wrongly sized — the Site Information (security) one, specifically. It's rendered for 2x but sized for 1.5x, so it becomes horizontally scrollable.

The placement is correct most of the time for me (using Wayfire, a wlroots based compositor), but sometimes e.g. the main menu appears way off to the side.

Yes, I can confirm although I need to restart browser after the change as there's Bug 1554850.
Closing this one as WFM as we can't do anything else on Firefox side.
