How To Stop Websites From Resizing Windows In Firefox

One of the really annoying things when you are surfing through various sites online, is every now and then a site’s JavaScript will automatically try to change the size of your window. This is still an issue in Firefox 8.0 and has been for a while, but there is a pretty simple fix.

At the top left hand corner of your Firefox window, select the drop down arrow under the word Firefox and choose Options>Options (or just press and hold the ALT key)


Now select the Content tab. Next to Enable JavaScript, hit Advanced.

Content tab

Now, uncheck the top box Move or resize existing windows and hit OK, and OK the remaining window.

That’s it, pretty simple eh?
