Is there a way to resize the pop-up window when editing an issue in JIRA 5.0.1?

Many of my JIRA users are complaining that the window size of the edit issue screen is too small. Is there a way to resize that window that pops up? In Chrome you can resize the fields easy enough, but there is no way to expand the entire width of the pop-up box.

If there is a way to disable the whole pop-up window and have it just show it on a normal page that would work as well.

One thing you can do, without making any coding changes, is edit it in another tab by either:

  • Middle clicking on Edit
  • Right click and choose 'Open Link in New Tab'
  • Ctrl/Command Left Click

This works for all the workflow actions - it opens it in another full-sized window so you don't have the overlay. It does mean your users need to do things differently, though.
