When resistFingerprinting is turned on, remember my window size

Posted

I understand Firefox defaults to a standard window size when privacy.resistsFingerprinting is turned on, but it is not a great size. To avoid the privacy concerns, what if Firefox remembered the size I set the window to, but then when it launches a new window, it varies the size randomly but +/- 10 pixels, so it becomes harder to pinpoint as a unique characteristic tied to one user?

I think that it is rounded in 200px sizes (800, 1000, 1200).
