Comment (by mikeperry):

 Ok, I think you are right that we should leave the grey border in there as
 a hint to the user about what we're going to do to the window size.

 I think also I understand why I was able to get the window to fail to
 resize now. I simply held on to the resize drag too long. I played around
 with trying to reschedule the ping() function if there was still
 discrepency in the gbrowser container vs content window box, but I wasn't
 sure which elements to use for sizing that.

 If we can get this idea to work, perhaps we can set the timeout much
 quicker (ie 10ms). I attached a patch that attempts to do this (but leaves
 the timeout as-is, since it was easier to see the log messages arrive in
 the browser console). Unfortunately, I tried a few things and couldn't
 find the right element to use to check the actual size discrepancy...
 perhaps you have some ideas?
