increasing the browser width and height on EC2 Test Agent

RE: increasing the browser width and height on EC2 Test Agent
The EC2 video drivers don't support a screen resolution higher than 1024x768 for 24-bit (and I can't run WPT at lower bit depths). The latest version of the agent code tries to set the desktop resolution as high as possible (up to 1920x1200) and all of the public agents that aren't on EC2 can do the resolutions you mention but EC2 just can't.

I did some poking around to see if there were other video driver options for Xen (what EC2 runs on) but from the looks of it Amazon would need to run the instances with more virtual video memory and given the usage model of their service it probably doesn't make sense for them.
