It seems harmless, isn't it? Or is it because some JS may be used to capture screen size with PDFs? For view-source: I can't think of any scenario.

Summary: Why is letterboxing enabled when viewing PDFs and with view-source:?Letterboxing is enabled in priviledged contexts too

This is happening as well to NoScript dialogs, e.g. on higher security levels if one wants to enable media (see: attachment).
