 The line that causes the window to resize after the user attempts to
 maximize is here:

 This code only runs when the "extensions.torbutton.startup_resize_period"
 is set to `true`. That pref is set to `false` in the
 `torbutton_on_abouttor_load` function, which is triggered by the custom
 "AboutTorLoad" event, created by the about:tor page (`aboutTor.xhtml`).

 So it seems the pref is only turned off when about:tor is loaded. We need
 to find the right place to turn off this pref regardless of whatever page
 is loaded in a new window. Maybe gk has a suggestion?
