Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

I like the bottom-right-hand corner grab area for diagonal resizing, but
it is not continuous the gnome corner window resize.

If you move your mouse down from the bottom scroll arrow, you hit
firefox's diagonal resize area, then you hit a small dead zone between
firefox's corner and the gnome corner and last at the bottom of the
window you get a down-only resize option, even right up close to the

This causes small fiddly movements with the mouse trying to grab the
correct area. If you move the mouse around down there it frantically
jumps around between the normal arrow and each resize method.

The whole bottom right corner should be one square shaped grabbable area
that resizes diagonally.

Firefox 3.03
