mozilla browser resizing


Is there a way to block websites from resizing mozilla?

I know there is a popup blocker but...

In the Windows version, under edit>preferences>advanced>scripts&plugins there's 'allow scripts to move or resize existing windows' and you uncheck it. Presumably, it's the same or similar in Linux. Only got Opera, Dillo, Lynx, Links, and w3m on my Linuxes so far, though so I don't know.

it depends on which version of mozilla you have

if you have something before 1.3 then digiot is correct, if you have something newer it is..

edit-preferences-privacy and security -pop up windows - suppress popup windows

Huh. I'm using 1.3 beta in Windows and it has both those options - popups would be for javascript mini-browser popups and resizing would be for main-window monkeying. But I'm not surprised it would differ from version to version and platform to platform.

Cool. Glad you got it fixed. People screwing around with my browsers drives me nuts.
