User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Fedora; Linux x86_64; rv:93.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/93.0

Steps to reproduce:

  • Use Fedora 34, Gnome Desktop, Wayland
  • Use two screens (the main one scaled at 100%, the secondary one at 125%)
  • Open the profile manager of firefox on the main screen

Actual results:

The profile manager zoomed too much, the scaling is broken and probably scaled for the secondary screen.
-> When interacting with the window, after some time, the windows rescales correctly.
-> When dragging the profile manager screen on the secondary screen scaled at 125%, the window looks fine.

Expected results:

The window should have scaled correctly.

I believe this feature is deprecated in favor of about:profiles (type it into the address bar). You can also create profiles and launch in a specific profile using the command line.

Component: Untriaged → Startup and Profile System
OS: Unspecified → Linux
Product: Firefox → Toolkit
Hardware: Unspecified → x86_64

Thank you for that information. But if this feature is deprecated it should be removed from firefox. Because a "non-maintained" feature could just cause issues and mislead users. I will wait for a confirmation that this feature is really deprecated before commenting any further ;)

Sounds like a widget issue.

Component: Startup and Profile System → Widget: Gtk
Product: Toolkit → Core

Does it affects regular Firefox window or just profile manager?

Blocks: wayland
Priority: -- → P3

It just affects the profile manager

I was able to reproduce this bug on Release 94 and Nightly 96(Windows Protocol: Wayland). The Severity could be S3.

Ever confirmed: true
