I just migrated from Ubuntu 20.04 to 22.04, and Firefox migrated to snap.

As a result, I have a problem where mouse cursor is tiny inside Firefox window.

enter image description here enter image description here

I have display scale at 200%, so I guess that is part of the problem.

Is there any workaround for this? I saw many questions around the internet, but I found no clear steps to solve the problem.

Thanks in advance.

  • FYI:: Just started to experience same issue, but have been using 22.04 and Firefox (snap) for some time. The two theme connections (suggested below) are not missing.

Check that icon-themes and sound-themes connections are missing:

snap connections firefox

Enable connections:

sudo snap connect firefox:icon-themes gtk-common-themes:icon-themes
sudo snap connect firefox:sound-themes gtk-common-themes:sound-themes

  • So, you have to do this for each and every Snap app, right? Jun 3, 2023 at 23:20

Somehow, connections properly set by snap on update doesn't work in my case. But after disconnecting and connecting, mouse cursor became normal.

$ sudo snap disconnect firefox:icon-themes
$ sudo snap connect firefox:icon-themes gtk-common-themes:icon-themes

Not sure how does this "manual" connection will behave on snap update, but will see.
