My window is so big by default that I cannot get my mouse to the lower right corner to drag and reduce the size.. This is very frustrating...

Ah, good old "window got pregnant".

Try entering this in your URL/Location bar, assuming you can get to it:

javascript:resizeTo(800,600)

.. or whatever screen size you desire.
I don't know how to do any of this stuff, I just hire the guys that do
Have you considered reading the HELP folder. Right there on your menu bar.

Thanks so much. You saved me. However, it doesn't seem to "stick". Next window opened is huge again... Any thoughts?

Try resizing the window, closing Firefox and then restarting Firefox?
