Comment (by Thorin):

 If you maximized the browser, just restore it. If you went full screen,
 just escape or F11 out of it. You will return to the previous size and

 There is a new feature coming in TB version 9 (the one based on Firefox
 68) that will mitigate manually resizing to a large degree, called
 `letterboxing` - it limits the viewport in the inner window, rather than
 relying on the browser and vrious chrome elements.

 Until then, when this happens, open a new window and close the existing
 one (and you will lose your tabs, sorry). NEW windows will open at the
 200x100 pixel inner window sizes
