    Firefox 3 RC1
    I've been a long user of Firefox for the longest time. Recently I went from Firefox 3 Beta 5 to Release Candidate 1.

    However, ever since I started using Firefox 3 RC1, when it opens it opens in a tiny window (about 50 x 50 pixels, the size of an icon) instead of a decently sized window. It also opens it in the top right corner of the screen (just under spotlight).



    I know it's not final release, but I was just wondering if anyone has experienced this also? and whether or not anyone knows of a fix? Is there a Mac command that you press while closing a window so that it remembers the previous location and dimensions of the window for when it reopens? I know Windows you hold the Control key as you press the Red X.

    TIA,

    I think I remember it doing that the first time I opened it and I just resized it. Now when I open it, it's the size it last was. Strange yours is doing that. Try zapping the plist file and running it again.

    Look for

    org.mozilla.firefox.plist

    I attached a pic. This is the one that the RC1 Firefox is using.

    I will check around the net and get back to you. It's working fine here since I resized it. Strange issue.
