Thank you for your suggestion. The problem is that when Firefox window opens minimized (I can tell the window is "open" minimized because the Firefox button is visible on the Windows taskbar) there's no way to grab a corner because there's no window
. When it opens maximized you can't drag a corner or edge because that's not an option in the maximized state. If the window would open even to a small rectangle, I could drag a corner or edge and make it into an intermediate size, but because of this ridiculous situation, there's nothing to grab or drag in either the minimized or maximized condition.
BTW, I've closed and reopened Firefox a number of times, I've rebooted Windows a couple of times, I've run it in Safe Mode, and I've re-downloaded and installed Firefox over itself, and all these steps have made no difference. The only
way I can open the FF window when it's in the minimized state is to press Alt+Spacebar to open its context menu and select Maximize. The Restore and Resize commands are grayed-out and unavailable. When I open the window's context menu when the window is maximized, the Restore command is available, but not Size (Resize), and if I click on Restore, the window goes into the minimized state.
