OK that sounds confusing... 

1. Start firefox
2. set the applications size how you want it.
3. Minimize.
4. xrandr -s <some small size>, Or use something that uses xrandr to change the root window resolution. (Typically something that wants full screen)
5. xrandr -s <back to normal> (Exit said application)
6. Restore firefox from minimized state. Observe that it is now shrunk to fit the smaller resolution.

Expected results:

What is firefox doing resizing itself when its minimized? From what I understand when its minimized, its not mapped, if its not mapped just sit there quietly please. :)
