How to stop websites from resizing your browser window in Firefox

I wish I’d known this years ago…

  1. Point your brower to about:config.
  2. Where it says “Filter” at the top, type in “resize”. Or just scroll down to “dom.disable_window_move_resize”.
  3. It probably says “false”. Right-click on it, and select “toggle”. Now it says “true”.
  4. You’re done!

This is for OS X, but I’m pretty sure it’s almost identical in Windows and Linux. No more seeing your carefully-constructed desktop hijacked by evil websites insisting that you view their content in a full screen! Yay!
