Smart window sizing, working zoom


(Core :: XUL, defect, trivial)

Not set

(Keywords: helpwanted, platform-parity)

Mac specific platform integration issues:

Smart window sizing, working zoom where content is accounted for when deciding
how big to make the window.

Where will this be used? It seems inappropriate for both Navigator and Messenger; 
and in windows like Bookmarks, Address Book, History etc, it will only be useful 
in the unlikely event that you have few enough items in these windows to fit on 
the screen at once.

On a 21-24" display with resolution set to 1280x1024 or higher. A *lot* of stuff
can fit on the screen at those resolutions. Should this be 4xp, as Communicator
did this quite well (sized windows appropriately to accomodate content when
clicking the resize button)?

Setting OS=All as this has implications on all Mac OS versions.

Setting Severity=Trivial as this isn't about functionality loss, but rather
suboptimal functionality...zoom does, in fact, occur, but not well.

unsetting All. We use os values to indicate the lowest common demoninator. 
Macintosh:All implies it occurs on say LinuxPPC or NetBSD PPC which is not what
we're trying to say.

This is nontrivial. Most pages fit within the width of the screen (generally
1024 or 1280 for me), and zooming them to (mostly) fill the screen means they
can't be staggered usefully. With rightsizing, I can often fit many windows
onscreen with a visible region of each to click, but with Mozilla 1.0.0RC1 on
Mac OS X, they're all the same size and location, and I must use the menu (or
nonstandard keyboard shortcuts) to switch among them. This is more important on
Mac OS X than Linux, since the Command-` window cycling shortcut is also missing.
I'd like to see this behavior in Mozilla and Chimera. It's one of my favorite
Communicator features (i.e., behave as the Finder does, zoom to remove
scrollbars where possible).

Moving this to core since this seems to deal with the native zoom buttons... (the new zoom feature zooms all of the page content, but in here it seems that it's not enough with that). Not sure if this is doable or valid.
