Firefox 7 kills 'window.resizeTo()'

Among my most useful bookmarklets are those I use to resize my main browser window. With Firefox 7, they no longer work. Some config changes made them work again, but only temporarily. This does not necessarily benefit the user. In some cases, it interrupts one's workflow.

Others have noticed the problem as well:

I don't like it when a site attempts to resize my window and never revisit such sites. But as a user, I want the freedom to quickly resize my own window to various specific sizes as needed and this change in Firefox 7 stops me from doing so – not a good decision in my opinion.
