    Notes

    Since Firefox 7, it's no longer possible for a web site to change the default size of a window in a browser, according to the following rules:

    1. You can't resize a window or tab that wasn’t created by window.open.
    2. You can't resize a window or tab when it’s in a window with more than one tab.

    See also window.resizeBy.

    Specification

    DOM Level 0. Not part of any standard.
