We should offer some kind of "fit" option to force the viewport to scale so the entire viewport is visible no matter the size of the browser window.  This would not change the document size inside the viewport, but instead scales down the viewport if needed to keep it all on screen at once.

Chrome's device mode offers this feature currently.

We have discussed a "fit" option several times as a team, but it's never been triaged so far, so let's discuss it.

It sounds like a helpful ability, especially with multiple viewports, but even for a single viewport that you want to set to a size larger than the browser window in one or both dimensions.

Any progress on this, it's pretty much debilitating when trying to develop on laptops.

Yes it can take years if no one works on the issue. Simply asking for it to be implemented doesn't make it so. Sharing your experience, use cases, or even offer your help to test, or implement the feature is what would have a much more positive effect on this bug.
Myself, I'd also really love this bug to be fixed, but so far, we've not been able to prioritize that over other things the Mozilla DevTools team has been working on lately.

If there is progress, it should happen here in this bug.  Continually asking if there is progress is not helpful and violates Bugzilla etiquette guidelines[1].
