I was surfing the net when I accidently resized a Mozilla window under Gnome, the bottom of the page is now under the bottom of the screen! How can I get it back up? I tried to maximize it, but I don't want it fullscreen all of the time.
I'm sorry for the very newbish question :oops:

Tried using "Resize" and/or "Move" from the window menu?

you said you maximixed it.... once its maximized, can you not just drag it to a reasonable size?

if that doesnt work, i think there is akey (maybe alt) that when pushed along with the mouse, can move the widnow from any place....
just move it up, and then resize it, and then move it down again...

The key is "Alt" if you're using a PC keyboard, "Option", I believe, if you're using a Mac keyboard. Hold down Alt/Option and click with the mouse; you should be able to drag the window around now, by clicking on any portion of it.

I tried that, but I couldn't move the titlebar of the window above the top of the window! So I still can't reach the bottom.
I also tried to resize the window when it was maximized, but I didn't got that arrow to resize, also tried it with Alt/Option+F8, nothing worked!
What I did was changing my resolution to the maximum, then I could very easily resize the window.
