Resize - Resolution 1280:800 is *3:2*, 1600x1050 is 5:3

to work, JavaScript browser window resizing must be enabled in your browser preferences (Tools, Options, Content, Advanced) -- Centering is based on having resolution width of 2560, see article This is a also available in Web Developer extension You can find these bookmarked shortcuts by typing the following into the Location Bar -- javascript resize *

fittowidth: Fit to Width (meaning Word Wrap, reduce need for Horizontal scrollbar)
A style to wrap words will generally work "Wrap PRE text (http and https only)" -- The code contained here works differently and works on the example site that was asked for and this bookmarklet came from the mozillazine page:
iPOD: simulate iPOD on larger screen
Firefox is not available in mobile version. Fennec is the Firefox mobile project.
max:v Maximized View (does NOT toggle)
Advantage, if window is closed Firefox will not remember this resizing. quirky -- when maximized hides a bookmarks property dialog (
mini: 341 x 384
netbook: simulate 800x400 resolution on a larger screen
pop: fit six smaller 341x384 windows on 1366x768

Keyword Extensions or Styling that should be part of Firefox

Keywords and the awesomeBar are the two best timesaving features of Firefox. The "OpenBookk" extension should be part of Firefox.

Add Bookmark Here ² :: Add-ons for Firefox
Has 458,950 downloads, appears to be similar to "Open Book" extension.
KeywordBar [not updated for Fx3, Downloads 15,353 ]
keywordManager :: Add-ons for Firefox [for Fx 3.5 and up, Downloads 4,435 ]
OpenBook :: Add-ons for Firefox .(downloads 357,987)
Originally to put the keyword into the bookmars menu without the single line userChrome.css change but it now also allows for customization of the Add Bookmark dialog. The bookmarks tree can be automatically opened and elements can be revealed or hidden. Also, the dialog can be resized! Downloads 357,987 as of Jan 31, 2010 from alone.

Keywords briefly mentioned in comments

Basil's Bodacious Blog » Blog Archive » Availability of new (AMO) site

Asa Dotzler: Firefox and more: a needed doc
Asa Dotzler: Firefox and more: Mozilla bookmarks
Bug 112292 – [rfe] Import keyword from links (support lossless exchanging of bookmarks)

The rest is about KEYWORD. Shortcuts ***

**Keyword Bookmarks

[How-To] Open Firefox Bookmarks Using Keywords | Technofriends
attachment.cgi (GIF Image, 746x654 pixels) - Scaled (85%)
Misguided method of adding keyword to Add Bookmark dialog because you have to click on a widget to bring up keyword which is actually in the main index record of a bookmark, and Tags are not.
Bug 123006 – Keyword substitution with %s doesn't escape characters
Fixed with a distinction made between %s and %S make keyword shortcuts work a lot better.
Bug 212605 – Include Bookmark Keywords in autocomplete and give them priority over history [SeaMonkey]
Expects typing a keyword without any operands to show up in autocomplete
Bug 213402 – bookmarks folders should also have keywords
Bug 215175 – bookmark keyword cannot be used to open bookmark in sidebar
Bug 215658 – Quick Search Bookmarks won't load in Sidebar when using keyword
Bug 246848 – Bad encoding by searching using bookmark keywords
Bug 258223 – Bookmark keyword quicksearch need a way to specify character encoding for query URLs
Bug 261175 – Keyword search should not require a name to be created
Bug 270703 – quick search keyword %s now escapes characters (expansion no longer works when string includes "/", "@")
Bug 272359 – Use of keyword link shortcut with %s used with fragment id change # to %23
2004-11-29 Marked as a duplicate of 270703 and fixed there along with other problems with character substitutions by making a distinction between %s and %S
Bug 356733 – "Add a Keyword for this search": poor wording, as the item is often not a "search".
Bug 359809 – Bookmark Keyword searches are not encoded properly (though keyword.URL is)
Bug 362164 – Add a shortcut field to the "Add bookmark"-dialogue
Bug 389903 – Autocomplete custom keywords with parameters (but only after I type a space)
Bug 404507 – Can't assign bookmark keywords from "Add Bookmark" dialog
This is the BUG all other keyword request were moved to and then closed , but has been reopened. This one is a SURVIVOR and was marked REOPENED after continuous attempt to suppress one of the BEST features in Firefox and was part of Firefox when Firefox started. Tips-and-tricks had a setting to changed long gone.
Bug 405795 – (keyword) Can't access all bookmark properties from location bar yellow star ("Edit this bookmark" popup, cannot change Keyword, Description, Location)
Bug 419713 – Lost ability to add keyword when adding bookmark (Ctrl+D)
Bug 420813 – Bookmark dialog disappears if we move other window to the front and then back
Bug 422026 – bookmark keywords with spaces don't work (trigger search behavior rather than the keyword)
Bug 441333 – Search plugins take precedence over keyword searches
Bug 524071 – Places UI (3.7): Bookmark contextual dialog should be detachable into a persistent sidebar
