I usually work on 1024x728px screen resolution. Nonetheless, all my project are fluid website made to fit a 800x600px screen. blah blah...
Let me just drop the question :)
Is there a way to fix the size of Firefox or Opera's window so that it has the size of a "800x600" on a large screen resolution?
The method I am currently using is this :
1/ Change screen resolution to 800x600
2/ Firefox window to full size
3/ Change screen resolution to 1024x728
4/ Reduce Firefox window size
And normally I get the exact size of a "800x600" window and can work on a 1024x728px screen resolution (much easier)...
Hope you got me? Thank you
Moltar - Could you let me know which open source "Screen Size Tester" you are using?
Condo12 - I went to Mozilla website looking for extensions but it is always asking me to update Firefox. Well, the thing is that I do not want to update. Anyway I could get the extension without updating?
I've found that the dimensions are accurate, but beware that the height includes the toolbars. (i.e., the dimensions are of the viewport.) So you may need to copy the screen image into Paint, or similar, to check the dimensions, and then adjust for the toolbars.
To add the bookmark, create a link with the above in the href, then view the page and drag the link to your bookmarks. Select the bookmarked link and your screen will resize to 800x600.
Let's say that I am not in a hurry and that I tend to keep my old browser with the assumption - I may be wrong - that if my HTML/webpage is clean in an old version and it is clean in all updates released after* - which not always the case the other way round?
* At least for FF & Mozilla ;)
Plus, when you drag a window in, it displays the exact size.

I couldn't work without this handy tool.
