#32411 new defect

Consider adding about:tor to the list of pages that do not need letterboxing

Description

Currently about:tor is letterboxed when resized, despite being a built-in 'systemy' page (like about:preferences or about:config). We can remove the letterboxing for this page with this patch:

https://gitweb.torproject.org/user/richard/tor-browser.git/commit/?h=bug_32220_v2&id=733e4014dc0a10c375c70070ec7ee9f468ea73e2

However, we may not want to do that and perhaps we want letterboxing for all content, regardless of whether it is a system page or not to avoid confusing users about different behavior.

I quite like it being LB'ed as it shows something is off with the rounding on new windows (all those quirks with toolbar showing, DPI not at 100%, etc) - i.e. before you load web content. Note that new tabs can grab the non-LB'ed size before it renders (see TZP or use this -> https://thorin-oakenpants.github.io/testing/newwinLB.html )
