Comment (by mikeperry):

 I was thinking that if #14429 landed, we could perform the resize upon
 maximize, and then display an informative notification upon the
 "sizemodechange" event after the fact, but similar to the one I just made
 for New Identity in #9906.

 Basically, we would tell the user that we resized the window, and have a
 "Never do this again" checkbox to disable resizing. However, we probably
 also need a "Never show this again" because the first few times the user
 sees it, they may just click through and not even realize what happened..

 The issues with #14429 are making me sad though. I feel it is rather
 important to have some kind of notification+resize here, even if we can't
 land #14429.. :/
