    initial v1  
    44> Basically, we would tell the user that we resized the window, and have a "Never do this again" checkbox to disable resizing. However, we probably also need a "Never show this again" because the first few times the user sees it, they may just click through and not even realize what happened..

    6 Ah, you wanted to re-purpose this ticket. :) I am definitely in favor of giving users some hints about what happened after they resized and thought they would maximize their window or make it fullscreen (given we land this in tandem with #14429). I am still not convinced that we should do that with modal dialogs. It might not be important enough to a lot of users to warrant a blocking dialog. Having modal dialogs for all sorts of decisions does not scale well UX-wise. The advantage of a notification box might be as well that it allows us to put all the "Never do this again" and "Never show this again" into one dialog why it is not straightforward to do that with several checkboxes (although one surely gets that to work: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/27310608/firefox-addon-sdk-prompt-with-multiple-checkboxes).

    88> The issues with #14429 are making me sad though. I feel it is rather important to have some kind of notification+resize here, even if we can't land #14429.. :/
