Upon utilizing the drop menu to action a selected message from Inbox, FF window resizes to size selected prior to maximizing.  Have not experienced with other actionable menus, ?site specific?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select any message or messages, does not matter if in Inbox or reading msg
2. Open drop menu to move, delete, etc and select action

Actual Results:  
Window resizes as above and is redrawn in entirety.  Note that redraw bug is addressed by another user, this is different.

Expected Results:  
Should simply redraw header with action acknowledgement from Gmail.  This issue new to 1.5, not seen in 1.0.6.

Seems to be WFM.  Can I just check the exact steps to reproduce are:

1) Log in to GMail
2) Open a message
3) From the "More Actions ..." Dropdown, choose an action

If so, all seems well in either "standard" or "basic html" mode.

Tried with latest branch (default settings) and I can't reproduce it either. So the window resizes even if it didn't open another tab?

Yes, tried both in safe mode and under different profile, occurs in both instances.  Have attempted under different theme, same result.  Have had only one other report of this bug occurring with other users I've talked to, however, may be isolated due to local system config.  No common thread between mine and that one yet, however looking into their system in more detail, will update if I figure it out.
