When I open up a second window in Firefox, it always opens up a little lower than the one before it, going under the dock. I, of course, want them to all open the same size and the same place. How do I go about making the second window and all windows opened after that to be the same as the first?

Hi,

This is the default behaviour for most browsers, and I'm not sure it that can be changed, AFAIK.

I use Safari and each new window is stacked just a little to the right and just a little lower than the one before. This lets you see how many windows are open in the application and to be honest, I just enable Tabs and use them instead. It's very rare that I open up a new window but I also have a 20" screen too!

Make sure the top of the original window sits flush with the Finder MenuBar and this should help a bit. You can also set the Dock to Always Hide in Dock Prefs to free up screen real estate, or relocate it to either side of your Desktop.

I have the same problem and figured it was default behavior. I just drag it back up and ignore it

I guess I thought I could fix this because I hadn't noticed it until recently. This is too bad because I like to have a few open windows with tabs inside of them to organize what I'm doing. It would be nice if there was an Add-On or something to correct this.
