    Window Firefox Preferences in Ubuntu VirtualBox

    Hi All,
    The window inside Ubuntu for the settings of Firefox is not completely visible. I cannot scroll down completely or see the whole window.
    I need to change some Firefox network settings which I use inside Ubuntu inside Oracle VM VirtualBox.
    Hope there is someone who can help me out.

    Thank you in advance!

    Kind regards

    You need to install the Guest Additions in the virtual machine. That will allow for better mouse capture, resizing the VM, sharing files, and using cd drives, etc. Download it from here:

    Here is the virtualbox manual section regarding installing Guest Additions. Make sure you follow the appropriate installation directions for the guest operating system:

    Additionally you mentioned that you wanted to fix something network related in the virtual machine's firefox. Have a look at the virtual network portion of the manual. One of the benefits of a vm is that networking becomes very easy to reconfigure in a moment.
