    Hey there!
    Well, when I resize the Safari window (right bottom corner), it seems like the window can't be resized tll the bottom of the screen, but till the left size of the screen, so it makes a gap between the bottom of the screen and the bottom of the window...
    What's the problem???

    Have you got the dock hiding?
    If not hide it, and then you should get the window right to the bottom.

    just a bit of humor, intended to go along with the little black man thingy :) nevermind

    Anyways, me thinks you dont really have a PROBLEM per se, but rather need to make a slight adjustment, either in your dock settings, and/or the vertical alignment of your screen.....

    There was meant to be a grain of truth in what I was stupidly trying to get across, in that the little gap is there so that the mouse can change focus onto the desktop. But a Finder window can be re-sized right to the bottom, so it doesn't follow the same logic. I guess they just adhere to a different Apple rule on window behaviour. And probably there's no such thing as a little man. But it had you going for a while, eh? :D

    In the preferences, it sais "the geometry tab of the display preferences is hidden because this display does not have geometry controls"...

    + my dock is hidden...

    There are no geometry controls on an LCD, that's only for CRTs.

    It happens to mine as well. I don't think it's so much a bug than a preference setting some UI designer chose to go with, leaving 4 pixels on the bottom as an area to activate the hidden Dock.
