Tech Support!

If any Mac users out there know the answer to this seemingly trivial question, I'd love to hear it.

I usually use Safari, but there is one situation that has just come up where I need to use Firefox. Firefox works fine for me, but I can't figure out how to resize the window. The "drag to resize" square that is usually at the lower right hand corner is hidden beneath the bottom edge of the monitor no matter what I do. The view menu only allows you to toggle between "full screen" and "not full screen." Both of these are too big. It's not a big deal, but it feels claustrophobic, like the browser is taking over my world, and I can't deal with it. For some reason, I need to see a bit of my desktop to feel safe and in control.

It's a 12" Powerbook, by the way.

UPDATE: Thanks, Kim! I should have tried downloading the latest version before whining in public. Version 1.5 is fully resizable, even for dummies like me. Never mind...

If you can see the top of the window, you should be able to drag it down and make it smaller so you can bring the whole window up and see the option in the lower right corner. Hope that makes sense...let me know if it doesn't.

try downloading camino for the mac. it is a mac-ized version of firefox and it is a little bit better in nitpicky ways. it's even hipper too, and less well heard of!

Try as I might, I can't see the bottom of my pants.
