 Resizing the tor-browser window makes it easier to identify you.

 However, wasting the screen estate is also bad.

 I suggest two ways to have a compromise:

  * Resize the window to any size you like, but the view area in the window
 is always (n*50)x(m*50) pixels. This way everyone with a similar screen
 size will also be reported as the same size to the website.

  * Force resizing of the window to be in 50 pixel steps.

 I have no idea which one of these is easier to build.
