Description

If I update a maximized Tor Browser to 5.5 I get a non-rounded window size of 1004x734. Might be related to showing the changelog after an update now. This is a Windows-only issue.

Confirmed on XP SP3, but it seems to be the "right" behavior:
Add-on finds the Maximized preference (?), left from last run before updating, then tries to restore resolution, so the ugly rectangle on the bottom disappears that leads to 734.

1004

Typo of 1000?

Replying to indolering:
Yes, it's the size seen on Win10, but there is no need to populate comments about it.

That's actually a more generic problem: even if I maximize the browser window and then either restart or hit New Identity I get those results. And this is not Tor Browser 5.5 related.

It does not get fixed by #19459 either (I tested v11) even though the new dimensions look more like 990x589 or 998x591.
