 The width of the Tor browser window is capped at 1000 pixels, but the
 height can grow without bound. We also always return "portrait" for our
 screen orientation, as per #13025. We should decide a sane way to handle

 In https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/13025#comment:17, gunes
 gave us some data on what the distribution looks like in the wild. We
 should use that data to find the best way to cap vertical resolution, and
 what to do with the orientation bit.

 I am thinking the best answer is to cap the vertical resolution so that
 people with vertical displays don't actually appear to be in that
 orientation due to a huge vertical size, and continue to lie about
 orientation, but I am open to suggestions.
