TorButton enforces the max screen size of Tor Browser 4.5a5 (#14429) as an anti-fingetprint attack but some users do not care about that.

There should be an opt-out option in TorButton's security window, preferably a CheckBox.

This "feature" needs a disable button or at least a working way of disabling it via about:config! When I try to disable it, I set these to false:


This is working for the current browser session, but when the browser is restarted (talking about 5.0a1 here) two of them are ALWAYS set to true (extensions.torbutton.startup_resize_period and extensions.torbutton.resize_new_windows), which really sucks. Please fix this!

We do have the opt-out option with letterboxing (privacy.resistFingerprinting.letterboxing is the preference to flip).
