But if I switch to a bigger resolution, as 1024x768, it works. So the problem is only when lowering the resolution. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.start firefox at 800x600 2.fullscreen mode works well 3.xrandr to 640x480 4.minimize/restore the firefox window to make it fit the new screen 5.press F11, the window is too big (it stays at 800x600) Actual Results: firefox was bigger than the screen Expected Results: follow the current resolution, rather than the resolution when started. The bug can be turnarouded starting Firefox at the lowest resolution avaliable.

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01". This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code. While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug (given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more reproduction information if you have it. If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved. Thank you for your help in this matter.

I have the same problem. Not only does the fullscreen function choose the wrong size, the menus (file,edit,etc) will go past the end of the screen when you go to a lower resolution (instead of moving to where they will fit). I have this issue with both firefox 1.07 and 1.5b2 FYI: There is a functioncalled XRRScreenChangeNotifyEvent provided by the XRANDR X extention that will notify apps of screen configuration changes. See <http://www.xfree86.org/4.4.0/Xrandr.3.html>.
This no longer happens with Firefox 2.0, but popup menus don't respect the new resolution, making them appear partially outside the screen. Should I file a new bug or morph this one into a more generic XRandR bug?
You should file a new bug about your issue. This bug, as filed, is now "works for me". Closing as such.
