I just tried the newest version of uzbl (2011.07.17) and immediately found this very annoying bug in uzbl-browser:

The window can be made bigger, but not smaller. Even more annoying is the fact that the window seems to auto-scale to the size of the website, which can be very large. I tested this with Fluxbox and KDE on Ubuntu 10.10.

As I built uzbl from git anyway, I ran a quick git-bisect, which showed the commit dbae85a36051ac0127c01e01ddec3078ee4ffbd4 as the culprit.

Best regards

Ah! Thanks for the bisect, that's quite helpful.

Setting scrollbars_visible = 1 should work around it. I'm seriously considering just removing the scrollbars_visible variable and recommending that people use GTK to hide scrollbars:

I don't object to reverting that commit, but there are cases (depending on versions of Webkit and GTK) where that doesn't fix it.

Other suggestions welcome.

Thank you very much for the hint, with scrollbars_visible = 1 the window behaves as expected.

Would you mind adding this setting to the example/default configuration file?
