I really get annoyed when a page re-sizes my window. Is there a setting in Firefox that will prohibit the windows from resizing?

I think this will do what you want: Go to

Tools>Options>Content tab>Enable Javascript>Advanced

Uncheck “Move or resize existing windows”

@Kevin No problem. Yes, almost simultaneously. I was only 8 seconds faster. I have done that many times so far. – KCotreau Aug 1 '11 at 2:07

Goto the "Content' tab in Preferences. Click the 'Advanced" button next to enable javascript and uncheck the appropriate box
