what size do you want? You can grab the lower right corner of browser and drag it to resize.

hey,

yes, i know that. in other words, when i originally installed firefox the default browser size on my MacBook (Leopard) fit the screen perfectly. Since installing ff, I have adjusted the dimensions of the browser window so it no longer retains the original browser dimension values. Originally, the browser did not take up the entire screen, so I was able to see parts of my desktop. In addition, the browser fit web pages very nicely. I would like to restore the browser to that size. I've tried doing it manually, but I cannot get it to the right dimensions like when I originally installed ff.
