Create a Mac-friendly Firefox window resize bookmark

I agree - it always bugs me that "maximize" doesn't do exactly that!

Create a Mac-friendly Firefox window resize bookmark

That's because the green button isn't maximize, it's zoom, which theoretically resizes the window to display as much content as possible, but not any bigger than that.

The problem with web browsers, and a huge number of other apps nowadays, is that they adjust their content to fit the current window size. Combine that with a button that's supposed to adjust the window to fit the content, and you end up with a schizophrenic button that has completely unpredictable behavior.
