    This is what it looked before

    And this is what it looks now

    I was using firefox from the OSS repo buth I have switched to the one in mozilla repo ( 65.0.1) but it continues the same.

    May be some library?

    regards

    I have not seen that happen. However, perhaps it only happens at some sites and I haven't used those sites.

    It's also hard to say, based only on those images, whether it is a firefox bug or a coding bug at the site where you are seeing the problem.

    I'm using firefox and haven't observed this behaviour. Any particular website(s)?

    Can you install Chromium or SeaMonkey and render that login page with one of those browsers?
    (I use SeaMonkey for all websites and for E-Mail, Chromium for 3d-accelerated Google Maps and Firefox for comparisons/testing etc.)

    Maybe this way we can determine whether it is the browser's fault or the website’s fault?

    Maybe it is not just a firefox problem (at least it is firefox's and seamonkey's).
    This happens also with firefox

    I can't see anything in the downloads because it is so small

    I have similar problems with LibreOffice when saving a file

    Dialog is very small. In this case I can expand it although every time I save something I have to expand it.

    I vaguely remember having Firefox- and Seamonkey- specific problems like that while using a broken GTK2 theme way back.
    Nowadays, both browsers rely on GTK3 for rendering UI elements, even within a website (prime suspects: textfields, radiobuttons, checkboxes and your standard scrollbar).

    On the other hand, Chrome/Chromium and Opera seem to roll their own UI, not sure.

    Try using another Gtk3/Gnome default theme (log out and in again to be on the safe side), and if you are so inclined, experiment with the GNOMErunner add-on (I use the add-on to make my SeaMonkey scrollbars to look like my standard KDE/Plasma5 scrollbars).

    Right. Both Firefox and Seamonkey use GTK3 ... LibreOffice too, true?
    Changing Settings-Application Style-Gnome Application Style (GTK) from Breeze to Adwaita solved the problem with Firefox and Seamonkey, It did not change the size of LibreOffice dialogues.... I will continue searching.
    Adwaita theme is ugly... looks like old Netscape but if it works it works :-)

    It seems it not only depends on the theme but on the font.
    With adwaita and adobe courier it looks ok, but with adwaita and times new roman it looks bad.
    Maybe it is neccesary a monospaced font?
