QGIS 3 dialog size to small when when adding features to shape

When I set a shape file to editing mode and click into the map to add a new features the popup dialog with the attribute tablet opens very small. I can manually adjust the size per mouse click to see the full content of the table and type in my edits. However, when I close the dialog and want to add the next feature the dialog opens with the tiny size again and I have to adjust the window size again to be able to add edits. That soon gets quite annoying when many features need to be added.

Related to #20380 ? In 3.6 I'm able to resize the dialog manually.

I can adjust the dialog manually - that is not the problem. However, the default popup size is so small that I have to adjust this every time to be able to enter data. That makes QGIS 3 almost useless when hundreds of points have to be entered as in my case. Then I need to switch back to QGIS 2.18 were the popup size fits the dimensions of the attributes table and I can directly enter data without the need to adjust the dialog size first.

Indeed, it seems to be related to #20380

Any ideas what might be the problem or could be a workaround?
