A questions about a window on X...

I have a firefox window on the top left part of my screen. I'm not able to reached the top lip of the window to move the window out from the edge, so it's just stuck there. I can kill the program and restart it but it starts in the same position. I'm sure a reboot would fix it or I could move my monitor using nvidia-settings, but I just wanted to know if there was a nifty X tool to change a particular window's coordinates so that I can pull it away from the edge of the screen.

In most DEs/window managers, if you hold down the Alt key and click anywhere on the window you can move the window. You don't need access to the titlebar.
