Mozilla startup Position

Hi there, Gruezi, Moikka, Bonjour. It's me again.

This time's I don't really have got a problem it's just a question I wanted to ask.

My X and Y coordinations arn't optimizied on Linux Fedora, but that isn't my mainproblem.
Im using the browser _

Mozilla 1.6
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040505

And I want to know if it's possible to set the startup position for Mozilla to "main screen" like that it opens in the middle of the screen, it currently opens really at the top of my screen and I don't like it that was.

Unfortunately Mozilla doesn't support the standard "-geometry" argument used by many X applications. As a workaround you can create a file like "~/startup.html" with the code:
<title>Please Wait...</title>
<script language="javascript">
Please Wait...
Then set it as your homepage. You can then set your actual prefered homepage where google is set above.
