Hi,

next strange behavior on my NVIDIA-470 machine.

Firefox no sides and edge control for resizing the window (only possible via window minimize and maximize buttons).

See attached screenshots.

Cheers

Iggi

Firefox is also not able to play mp4 videos though all codecs installed.

It turns out that this is an intended behavior by Firefox and is by default switched to on. On all X11 systems, this happens, it happens also on my Linux box as it turns out. You can get mouse resizing to work if you enable the Title bar. For this go to Customizing and in the Lower left edge of the Window tick the Checkbox named Title bar.

There may be plugins and CSS customizations to get better behavior from Firefox but this behavior is something Firefox turns off by default on all X11 Systems.

Thanks Till.

Indeed, did a pkg update to the latest Firefox 125.0.2 and same behavior as before, then did as you suggested:

More tools/Customize toolbar (checkbox Title Bar) and right theme and re-sizing works as expected.

I tried this here and I found that the problem seems to be related to the Nimbus theme. When I switched to TraditionalOK then the mouse resizing by dragging window edges started to work.
