It's possible from the command line, but it cannot be done in the simulator.


We've talked about doing this, but we haven't prioritized it because Firefox OS's initial release will be on a single device with only one resolution.

But clearly that release will be followed by others on devices with different resolutions, and this will grow more important over time! So we should indeed provide a way for developers to specify a resolution for the Simulator that corresponds to one of the resolutions on commonly-available Firefox OS devices.

It's worthwhile to note that we will NOT be shipping with a single screen size: the Keon and Peak developer phones will have two different screen sizes/resolutions. It's also safe to assume that additional carriers will want to ship phones that have larger screen sizes and resolutions, as well. Whether this makes this feature more important is debatable, though.

simulate DPI #359

What the exactly responsive solution for firefox os (not app) ?
Simulate dpi is not a solution ! we need a global and perfect solution for all ux/ui like responsive design
Is firefox os ui responsive ?
