Comment (by gacar):

 Replying to [ticket:7255 mikeperry]:
 > We should display some kind of toolbar message or otherwise warn the
 user against maximizing their Tor Browser window, because maximization
 reveals monitor resolution and toolbar sizes.
 If  a notification (not a confirmation) dialog is what is needed,
 Notification API can be useful here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US

 There's a demo to check how it looks like, works fine with TBB 3.6.5:
 You need to give permission for this one, since the notification comes
 from the page. Torbutton won't need the permission.
