There's no code in phpBB for resizing avatars, the Maximum avatar dimensions in the ACP are only to stop users from uploading a larger avatar than the preset size you specify, you need a MOD for that. The avatars that are over size are they uploaded or remote? I see one avatar is remotely hosted with dimensions of 171 x 195.

That is remote yes. Should I check NO for remote avatars to prevent larger than 150x150 avatar?
Or there is other way?

The dimensions you set should work for remote avatars as well IF phpBB can determine the size. I suspect the over size avatars were in use before you started changing the dimensions, did you have a higher size limit previously? Possibly the size can't be correctly determined for whatever reason so yes, disallowing remote avatars is an idea in your case.

I used smaller avatars before.
I am just thinking - should I change back CSS and includes/functions_display.php?

Actualy I did changed includes/functions_display.php right now and looking for that BAD avatar. And cant find it :) So maybe this is solution?
