The profile manager UI contents don't scale to hi-dpi resolutions (on my Retina MBP) but the window size does. This means that not all parts of the profile manager are visible on my hi-dpi screen (Retina MBP), making it partially unusable.
I use the profile manager every day on my Retina MacBook Pro, and I've never seen this. What version(s) of OS X do you see this on? What version(s) of Firefox? Do you have STR? Does it happen both with and without an external monitor attached?
Oh, interesting. This is with: * OSX 10.9.1 * Retina MBP screen & external 24" Dell in the office * m-c build from this week * only happens with the external monitor attached
I just tested with a setup very close to yours, and I still don't see this bug. * OS X 10.9.1 * Retina MBP with NEC Multisync LCD2190UXp (non-Retina) arranged to the left * Today's m-c nightly How, exactly, are you running the Profile Manager? I'm running it at startup (after having run firefox -ProfileManager from the command line and unchecked "Don't ask at startup"). I don't actually know of any other way to run it ... but I thought I should ask. Sometimes it makes a difference where you "arrange" your external monitor (in the Displays system pref panel).
Does your problem go away if you reboot your MBP :-)
* Re-arranging the screens doesn't make a difference * Moving the dock from the MBP screen to the Dell results in the attached too big dialog instead * Moving the dialog between screens doesn't change things * ... i'll report on rebooting later, not good right now :)
Oh, and i'm just running using: ./mach run -P Which ends up doing: <objdir>/dist/NightlyDebug.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -no-remote -foreground -P
> Moving the dock from the MBP screen to the Dell results in the > attached too big dialog instead This is the key. With it I see something like your bug, but only after I do the following: 1) Start FF (today's m-c nightly) by double-clicking on it. Since I've enabled the Profile Manager as per comment #3, I see it first, on the non-Retina display -- but it's not yet displayed incorrectly. 2) Drag the Profile Manager window to the Retina display, then click Exit (that is, don't start FF). 3) Double-click on FF again. Once again I see the Profile Manager on the non-Retina display. But this time it's twice as wide and high as it should be -- though its UI elements are displayed at the correct size. This is definitely a bug, but probably low priority. If (as I suspect) it's an old bug, the fact that it hasn't been reported til now means very few people see it. But please do look for a regression range. > Does your problem go away if you reboot your MBP :-) No need to bother :-)
