Userscript or -style to disable responsiveness of website
I like to arrange my browser on one site of my screen and have room for another application on the other half of the screen. This results in a width of my browser window of about 775 px.

Many sites, Codidact included, will seriously squash their layout at such narrow widths, see e.g. the following screenshot of the Power Users front page:

![Screenshot of the Power Users front page showing a very narrow main column](https://powerusers.codidact.com/uploads/b45g1bq4yosdq52ov8oz1h0qodn1)  

The main column gets very narrow and most of the headline is hidden and requires extra clicks.

If I use Firefox's responsive design mode and manually increase the page width to 860 px, I get a much nicer layout with a wider main column and the only infrequently used right sidebar is partially hidden behind a scroll bar:

![Screenshot of the Power Users front page showing a wider main column and partially hidden side bar](https://powerusers.codidact.com/uploads/o3sfwcbo54cflf1lfpf3c6749rxb)

Is there a way to use a userscript or userstyle to permanently change the width of a site?

Environment:

- Firefox 115.1.0esr
- macOS 13.5
