Tor Browser 4.5a5 fails to maximize

Tor Browser 4.5a5 on OS X

When I try to maximize the window, the window size changes to something in between the default size and the maximum size and then quickly scales to maximum.

I see the warning and when I click to resize the window back to default, the browser gets confused (rescales a couple of times) and then gets back to that 'in-between' position and I'm unable to maximize or reset the window size.

Clicking on new identity re-opens the browser in the default window size, but any attempts in maximizing the window, fails.

I'm just gonna add a quick tl;dr workaround here for the rest of the world:

if you're reading this and have the same problem, go to about:config and set extensions.torbutton.resize_windows to false. Your life will be much easier now.

Thanks to GeKo!

We go with letterboxing from now on. If you really do not like it, there is a pref to disable that feature.
