Attached file xulstore.json

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:108.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/108.0

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Quit Firefox. Replace xulstore.json with attached one.
    This file is from my daily-use profile.
  2. Launch Firefox. Go to about:preferences#privacy -> click "Manage Data..."


  1. Run this in the Browser Console:
    Services.xulStore.setValue("chrome://browser/content/preferences/dialogs/siteDataSettings.xhtml", "SiteDataSettingsDialog", "height", "494");
  2. Go to about:preferences#privacy -> click "Manage Data..."

Actual results:

"Manage Cookies and Site Data" dialog is too tall.

Expected results:

The dialog should be resized properly.

Bug 1779695 - Use modern flex on in-content pages. r=Gijs,dao,preferences-reviewers

This fixes the edit bookmarks dialog by properly allowing stuff to wrap once
the dialog width has been fixed.

Let's try to do this and opt-out any specific pages that may hit issues,
rather than opting-in one by one, now that's early in the cycle?

If we have frameHeight = 500px, minHeight = 800px and maxHeight = 600px,
we still need to make the dialog scrollable, otherwise the frame will be
too tall. This fixes the root issue, see following patch to fix the
issue specific to this page.

Assignee: nobody → emilio
Ever confirmed: true

This restores the pre-regression behavior for this dialog.

Depends on D163162

Probably not worth landing in this bug and should need some tests, but
if we don't we probably want to purge old XULStore values so that this
doesn't happen again?
