I was wondering, and I dont know if this is even possible, but am I able to lock the size of my windows? If I open up firefox can I set it to a certain size and keep it that way without it taking up the whole screen? I know I can adjust it to different sizes but its an annoyance when you accidently click on the top of the window and the whole screen gets covered.

The Picture is how I want the screen to look but all the windows locked into that size

Not sure but their is an addon called minifox which is a miniature firefox. It needs updated so it won't work with the latest firefox but it might be worth looking out for future updates.

Adjust the window to the size you like then close firefox. Restart it and it'll keep the previous size. That trick works with all windowed programs.

I know that trick, but it isnt semi permanant. Theres the center box beside the X in the top right corner of the window. I would like that center box to be the 2 little boxes showing the window is locked.
