Resizing of Firefox window works smoothly but in a short while, without anything else going on or input from mouse, reverts back to near, within a few pixels, full screen.  I like to have the taskbar showing at the bottom and it just will not stay less that almost a full screen in size.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. grab lower right hand resize tool and bring it in and up a bit. At least exposing the Taskbar.  
2.  Just wait OR work within the window
3.  Al of a sudden... Blink... back to near full size covering up the taskbar every time.

Expected Results:  
I expected that the window would stay the size I make it.  Before the 3.0 series this was not a problem that I can recall.

I am not able to reproduce this; it needs at least additional information.
It sounds related to Bug 419292.
Did you also test this in safe-mode, and does it happen on every site?

Sorry to hear that you could not reproduce my problem.
I never run in safe mode so I don't know the difference that might  
make.   It happens on every site without exception.

Here is some info that will explain my system.

Safe-mode helps to narrow down the cause of the problem. Without that it is not possible to distinct between Firefox issues and problems caused by add-ons or additional settings.
