Currently, there is only a very small region in which you can shorten or widen the sidebar. I don't think the browser should meddle with that, the user can decide for himself how wide or short he wants it.
Created attachment 196838 [details] [diff] [review] patch This fixes it for me. I've kept the min-width in the patch (but with a smaller value), because otherwise, at values close to 0, I get some minor layout/paint issues (otherwise I would have removed the min-width also).

Comment on attachment 196838 [details] [diff] [review] patch I'll admit that the reason for a max-width escapes me at the moment, but I know we want to always keep the sidebar in view to keep things simple (stupid). Anyway, a UI issue, so forwarding...

Comment on attachment 196838 [details] [diff] [review] patch 5em is basically pointless as a min-width, not sure on the logic there. Anyway, we do the same thing as Firefox here, we just clamp a little narrower, since the topics are fairly short (and should be fairly short for ease of discovery).

If there's a compelling reason why we would want to make this wider, I'm all ears, but right now its more than enough for for a Help viewer. Any wider isn't necessary unless we get overly-long topics.
Well, with the IE6 help viewer I can resize the sidebar to my own liking (although I can't do that with the sidebar in IE6 itself, which is indeed inconsistent). Personally, I get annoyed when software doesn't do what I ask them to do. but feel free to WONTFIX this bug.
