Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6

Mozilla appears to be limiting the width of the its browser windows to that of
the desktop (i.e. the resolution of the screen).  This is inconsistent with
standard behavior on the Mac.  Allow windows to be stretch as wide as the user
wants, multiple times the width of the desktop.  This allows users, for example,
to take screen shots of websites with large browser width, or simply to pan
within a site's contents by dragging the window instead of using the scrollbar.

BTW, this is on an iBook in 1024x768.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Mozilla.
2. Drag part of the brower window off the left edge of the screen.
3. Begun to resize the window by dragging the resize handle in the lower left
corner of the window.
4. Attempt to drag the handle all the way to the right edge of the screen (i.e.
make the window as large as possible).

Actual Results:  
The window stops growing when it reaches the current width of the desktop.

Expected Results:  
The window should have continued to expand until the resize handle reached the
right side of the screen.

I have no problem making the Firefox window larger than the current desktop width. This can be closed.

Version: 45.0.2
OS X 10.11
Indeed, this is now working. (And probably has been for a long time.)
