We fixed a bunch of issues with screen size rounding by moving our
Torbutton hack into a direct Firefox patch. If you look at our bug
you'll see that there are still issues open regarding our resizing
efforts, though. E.g. #14098 where you commented recently. If you think
your issue is not covered yet, please file a new bug with steps how to
reproduce it.
