Mozilla taking my whole screen


Hello:

I am running Debian 3 (2.4.18-bf2.4); I have Mozilla 1.0 running on resolution 800x600, depth 24. When I open "Preferences" it overlaps the whole screen and there's no way to get out except pressing "Esc." Also, when a small window opens (like when downloading), it extends beyond the right/leftmost of screen. I would assume that goes with windows opened by other applications (just apt-installed x-window-system, fluxbox, lynx and mozilla).

Specifics:
Monitor: Samsung Syncmaster 763mb 17"
Video: Radeon 7000 32mb sdr

This is my XF86Config-4:

If you hold Alt and click the mouse anywhere on a window you should be able to move it. Then you can get to an edge and resize the thing
If it doesnt remember the new workable size, which Moz should, try using your window manager's Save settings option

fluxbox did give me some problems. It is horribly slow in contrast to its earlier versions.
Have u tried other window manager ( fvwm maybe )

Proud: thanks for the help. However, even though I can move it by pressing Alt and moving mouse, the "Preferences" and and pop-up window isn't resizable; it doesn't has that small part on the right-belowmost corner of any window where you can press it with mouse and drag it to resize. The Mozilla window is just fine; it's resizable, what's killing me is the "Preferences" and any pop-up window.

I know the latest version of Flux doesnt have the bottom right bit to grab, but you can still click the corner and resize, it just isnt obvious.

Well I still want to clock up another
Nice one for actually searching the posts.
The latest latest version of Fluxbox (0.9.3) has the resize grab handles back.
