It's resizable for security reasons -- the source URLs can be quite long and
people need to be able to see them.

1. I probably wasn't clear enough. I meant a window that appears when user
downloads a new Mozilla theme. There isn't any URL there.

2. Even if there is another kind of Software Installation window with URl
visible, it isn't IMHO reason to make it resizable. The download dialog solves
this problem by ability to select and scroll the URL (the URL is displayed in
kind of read-only editbox that looks as normal label on first look). Why not use
this behavior too?

I'll attach screenshots so I could be understood correctly...

Screenshot of Software Installation dialog I had on my mind when I reported
this bug. No URL there but it is resizable.

You can scroll to view the whole URL.

David, it seems that submitting a new bug as an enhancement request would be
more helpful than tracking it here.  Resizing is necessary as Dan comments.
