Comment (by kevun):

 Interesting, huertanix. I recently did a UX experiment on the Tor Browser
 and this warning was viewed as one of the  positives of the Tor Browser
 interface by new users, and didn't seem to be missed. Either way, having a
 way to undo the mistake and set it back to the common dimensions seems
 like a very useful feature.

 For the idea of a JS prompt that is more in-your-face, I like it but it
 would have to be carefully designed to avoid pop-up fatigue. Maybe only
 one pop-up per browsing session?
