Automatica resizing of browser windows is not something well behaved
applications should be doing. For a start the user can quite easily
resize it manually as required & they are in by far the best position
to do it, since they can visually see when it is the correct size. At
best we could guess at what a resonable size might be to display all
content, but more often than not it would be wrong, since there are so
many variables to consider & thus automatically resizing would just
annoy users.

It is certainly possible I am simply unaware of how to resize it manually.
But I wonder, are we talking about the same thing? Here is a picture of the
"window" I mean.
