resizing windows with a java script, doesn´t work on firefox 7.01

more options

I have a macbookpro, 2,53ghz core i5, 4GB RAM, OS 10.6.8,

with firefox 7.01

I loved that feature and the problem only hapened when I updated Firefox.

Thank you for your support Lino

Chosen solution

The PrefBar extension has a button to resize the screen.

I use this modified set function to see the current dimensions and change them easily.

if(value == 'PROMPT'){
 value = goPrefBar.msgPrompt(null, 'width x height', window.outerWidth+'x'+window.outerHeight, 'Resize');
}

if(value != null){
 var vA = value.split("x");
 if(vA[0])window.outerWidth = vA[0];
 if(vA[1])window.outerHeight = vA[1];
}

Hello Lino,
In Firefox 7 resizing the main window with javascript is no longer allowed for security reasons. See bug 565541 - Web sites shouldn't be allowed to resize main window

Although it ads another bar, which I didn't want, its the possible solution.

Thank You
