Every time I use Firefox I resize and reposition the window.
When I close it, it doesn't seem to store this information anywhere, and the next time I open it, it is back to the original position and size.

The chosen position and size appears to be top left, and 996 x 1160 - although that may just have been what I last used under FireFox 1.0

It has been suggested to me that this is somehow controlled by the file localstore.rdf, however when I check mine, in c:\program files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\profile, it has not changed since the day I installed this new version.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Browser
2. change window size and/or position
3. close browser
4. start browser again
5. size and position have reverted to what they were before the changes
Actual Results:  
size and position revert to what they were before changing them

Expected Results:  
size and position should have been what they were when I last closed the browser

Ignore me - just thought to check inside the windows profile area, found another copy of localstore.rdf, checked it.
For some bizarre reason it was full of spaces - 45k of spaces.
Deleted file, everything was then fine.
No idea *how* I got 45k of spaces in the file, but hey, its fine now.
