Firefox window resizing to full screen at launch

User Help for Mozilla Firefox

Here's a late reply to this. I was trying to get my full screen FF to scale down too. Here 's what I did...
Go to menu WINDOW > ZOOM
This should stretch to fill the screen.
Do WINDOW > ZOOM again.
Resize the window to what you want by using the bottom-right-corner sizer.
Quit and restart FF to see if it worked.

It worked (mac os 10) thanks a lot!!!

I had the same issue (10.5.6, Firefox 3.0.8) and the simple Zoom fix proposed by fcapio work perfectly for me.

SWEET! It works.

Thanks so much. I've been looking all over for a solution to this peculiar behavior.

This is less drastic [only resets window size, not toolbars], from :

I don't know who jari is, but I'm grateful forever.
