Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:


  1. I’m using latest IE11 (auto-update enabled in Windows Update), Win 8.1 64bit

  2. I have the favourite center pinned on the left side of IE11

  3. Visit the page: http://www.stadium.se/

  4. Move the mouse cursor close to the lower-right of the webpage content window.

  5. Press CTRL and mouse wheel up to zoom in, multiple times (continuously rolling the wheel), then zoom out the same way.

  6. Often, even on the first time, the IE11 window is suddenly being resized and keep resizing, as I roll the mouse wheel (CTRL is kept pressed)

Expected Results:


A maximized window should never be resized on content zooming.

Actual Results:
