Firefox 1.5 Resizing of Boxes doesn't "Hold".

Recommended Posts

With other FF versions I've used it has been a simple matter of placing the mouse cursor on the box perimeter and resizing.

In this case, with Firefox 1.5, resizing by this method doesn't "hold". The next opening of the box finds it to be the original size.

The box/window I specifically refer to is Bookmarks Manager -> Move -> Choose Folder.

dom.disable_window_open_feature.resizable key in about:config is set to true.

Any suggestions?

try changing the key

dom.disable_window_open_feature.resizable key in about:config

to false.. i'm still not sure what box you're talkin about though, the main Manage Bookmarks window or which? cause mine stayed the size i left it.

The default about:config setting is "false" and I was advised to change it, to no effect.

Open the main Manage Bookmarks window [bookmarks -> Manage Bookmarks], select a bookmark or folder, click "Move" on the toolbar and a box/window "Choose Folder" opens.

It is this box/window which will not stay resized.

ahh i see, it's not just your computer with this issue, mine resizes to the default as well when the box is closed.

i'll look a little tomarrow when i wake up for a fix, but i'm not really ever in that screen to actually notice it.

From a couple of other places users have also said "However mine doesn't remember it either", so possibly this is a "feature" of 1.5 - an unwelcome one in my opinion - and surely an oversight or error, as the boxes/windows "Exceptions" and "View Cookies" at Tools, Options, Privacy, retain their resized values.

The patch is available here:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi...503&action=view

I notice the patch appears to be "revision 1.18", yet the author refers to "new revision: 1.20; previous revision: 1.19".

How is the patch applied?

i dunno, i don't see a file called "addbookmark.js" anywhere, i'd just wait until the next version of firefox, should be fixed by then.

Actually, reading Bugzilla Bug 300988 leaves me somewhat confused.

As you say "i don't see a file called "addbookmark.js" anywhere". Is this patch only for developers, not users?

If so, then the bug shouldn't be in 1.5 as the patch is dated "2005-07-15 19:53 PST".

To me, it doesn't add up.
