Holy Extensions Batman!  Do you have the miniaturization bug?

Are there any extensions you *don't* have?

I am truly impressed.

Sorry. ... I thought "anyone" meant anyone.

My point is that I read that newsgroup and I've never seen nor heard of
this before. I'd be interested to hear what the support gurus there have
to say.

Btw, I'm still using Firefox 1.0.7, as I got sick of the Firefox
update/extension hassles. Could this only be happening in Firefox 1.5?

This has happened to me a few times too! I thought it was just me :D

Well it does it, but it's hardly on the scale of "trouble".

IMHE, it happens whenever I restart FF after it has crashed or frozen
so that I killed it manually.

I also have a weird problem where on my aged laptop with 256MB limited
memory, FF is a real memory hog that grabs 200+MB of memory and doesn't
release it. On the desktop with 2GB it sits quite happily around 100MB
and never grows far beyond this. Same FF versions.

That's odd.  I never have it happen on start up.  Or, to be more
precise, if I had the "disappear to 1 pixel" happen and needed to
maximize, then the next time I start up it's at a very small size that
still shows scroll bars and enough acreage for me to manage to resize
it (certainly an improvement over the prior situation.)

IIRC, their FAQ has a section on the memory hog issue.  I don't
remember all the suggestions, but there were a few.
