from galeon bug  http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=67866 
by gareth@omnipotent.net (Gareth Watts):

I'm using the latest 1.0.2 debian package of Galeon.
The following page contains a link which opens a popup window.  A link in
that target window should then increase the height/width of the window
using the resizeTo() method.  It appears that mozilla increases the area of
the page but Galeon doesn't increase the size of the window to suit.  Works
fine in Mozilla/Netscape/IE.

See: http://omnipotent.net/popuptest/
Ever confirmed: true
Setting window.outerWidth and window.outerHeight seems to have the same problem.
 (Setting window.innerWidth and window.innerHeight sort of works, as long as you
don't set both at the same time.)
The parenthetical comment in comment 1 is now bug 230943.

I have to say It was not working with v9.0 but since 9.1 it does !

Shoudn't this bug set as "resolved" ?

I assume the previous comment is about firefox... This bug is about the gtk
embedding widget. It was posted by galeon people.. Does firefox use this widget
or does it do it differently? I assume that because it is written in xul it
wouldn't use this. If it does use this widget then will galeon work now? This
bug shouldn't be closed until it's possible for galeon to receive size_to
signals of course...

P.S. Don't forget to vote for this bug...

Still seeing this problem in Epiphany (using the gtk embed widget like Galeon) with ff 1.5.
