Unable to resize due to extensions

shadez 5 years ago • updated by Ionuț Botizan 4 years ago 3



my problem is that i am unable to resize window say below 500px width.. so am unable to see 320x480 res, and thats not a good thing to happen while designing responsive codes..

am assuming that its the installed and active extensions which are stopping this from happening..

now chrome doesnt let you 'hide' extensions if they are active, i guess..

so would you have a workaround for it?

Here's how you can temporarily hide extension icons in order to be able to resize the window to smaller dimensions: http://screencast.com/t/KXXnd2Youj7
I can't do anything about this because the Chrome Extensions API is pretty limited when it comes to actually interacting with the browser itself. The only thing that comes to mind is to add a prompt to open the active tab in a popup if the resize fails

turn inspect-element on, and use the "dock to main-view" to put it on the RIGHT side (not the default bottom side). Now your window can be much smaller. Works for me!

thats one crazy hack but works perfectly.. Thanks.. :)

but now i gotto get used to the console on RHS.. damn!

would be in total love with this plugin if resizing viewport would work...

There is actually a way to hide extensions! Just place the cursor between the address bar and the first extension. A "resize" arrow will appear, that lets you change the width of the extensions zone.
