Is it possible to set Firefox to launch into a maximized window when I open it? Its annoying to have to always resize the window.

If you are using Windows XP (I think 2000 will work too) you can right click on your shortcut for Firefox, go to Properties, then where it says "Run" you can choose "Maximized"
