firefox opening window size issue

OS: win xp home with sp2
Firefox v. 2.0

No matter what i make the window size for Firefox it always opens at the a certain dumb window size, which is about half the width of my monitor. (screenshot: http://img300.imageshack.us/img300/4515/firefoxsizepq4.jpg)
i can stretch it or maximize it when I'm using Firefox, but when i close it and open it again, it's always the window size in the screen shot.
some extra info is that i also got some bug when i had Firefox 1.4 that messed up the search bar (fixed now with 2.0), made the window size always a certain size that i did not leave it as, ect...

is there anyway to fix this opening window size problem? it wasn't really a big deal when i had 1024x768 display, but just annoying when i went up to a 1680x1050 display

Greetings, done121 !

Drag the corners of the Full window to fill the screen. Do not hit the Maximize icon.  Close the window. Next time Firefox opens, it will open full screen.

Best wishes!

Something in your profile is corrupt.  Create a new Firefox profile.

If the Firefox window open properly unmaximize, copy the old profile data to new profile. Make sure to test about opening window each time, so you do not copy the corrupted file over.
