Disable browser window resizing in Firefox
Development etiquette has generally made web browsing a more pleasant experience over the years, removing such horrors as blinking text and the background midi. Unfortunately, there are a few annoyances still left on web sites, and one of the worst is the forced resizing of your web browser. Nothing peeves me more than having my browser window be resized to full screen without my permission, but if you’re a Firefox user, you can do something about it. Here is how to disable the resizing of your browser window in Firefox.
How to disable automatic browser resizing in Firefox
- In Firefox, navigate to the Firefox menu and down to “Preferences”
- (in Windows, it will be under Tools->Options)
- Navigate to the Content tab
- Uncheck the topmost item, “Move or resize existing windows”
That’s all you have to do. Firefox will no longer allow web pages to resize your browser window. If anyone knows how to disable browser resizing in Safari or other web browsers, please post how in the comments.
