browser size issue with tor browser 8.0.2

Actual result and description of the error

-On a Tails 3.9 OS the Tor Browser window opens in resolution 1000x597 instead of 1000x600
(native resolution 1366x768 and technically the 3 'missing' pixels
would hide behind the taskbar)
-Occasionally browser window opens in 994x597. Once you press ctrl+B
two times it goes back to 1000x597.
-I wasn't able to reproduce the browser size issue with tor browser 8.0.2 on a non-Tails OS with same native resolution. Tor browser opens with a 1000x600 screen.
-On Tails 3.8 Tor browser would open with resolution 1000x500

Desired result

-When opening a tor browser window on a Tails 3.9 OS the screen resolution should be forced to 1000x600 on screens with a native resolution of 1366x768

Do you have the bookmarks toolbar visible in your Tails setup? If so, this sounds like #27845. And, if so, does your problem go away if you hide that toolbar?
