There is a difference between a shortcut and the IE icon that is on your desktop -- which you should have removed when you installed Firefox. If it's a shortcut, you should be able to right click on it, choose properties. Make sure you're in the "Shortcut" tab (near the top, the ones there change depend on the shortcut you're modifying) and there should be a line/box that is titled: "Run" and change that one to "Maximized". Not sure if that's really what's causing the small window phenomenon (I doubt it for some reason) but hope that's a little more explicit.
If that doesn't work, try this: open Windows Explorer (Start > Run > Type explorer > Enter). Maximize the window. Click Tools > Folder Options... > View (tab) > Apply to All Folders > Yes > OK. Close Windows Explorer. That may or may not work. I don't know because I've never done it before.

Don't worry, eftda. I'm on your side here. For straight-up performance and ease of use, a Mac is better. I don't like the software restrictions that Macs place on you, but I can deal with it for reliable, consistant performance.
Also, my wife's a graphic design major, and almost all of her software works tons better on a Mac than it does on a PC.

What softare are you talking about?
My friend just got the new vivo and I just got the new mac mini. He paid more and after using both I can honestly say that the mac mini is faster. He now is thinking about the mac mini. Its only $499!
