    Click the green button in the traffic light type thing at the upper left of the window, or click and drag the lower right hand corner of the window until it's exactly the size you want.

    clicking the green button is more often miss than hit with me. so much that i don't even bother with it and just drag the window from the bottom right corner. it's easy and relatively quick.

    Could you press the SHIFT key, :apple:COMMAND key, and 3 key at the same time please to take a screenshot of the problem. Do this with safari open so we can see the problem. I don't really understand your problem see.

    The screen shot you take will be put on your desktop...attach it by replying and scrolling down and clicking this...

    Actually, she was a he. And big and hairy and typing in a damp basement. However he knew he wouldn't get any help from us nerds if he was honest about his gender. :D

    Next time anyone tries to get our attention buy claiming to be a "girl in despair", they must upload a pic of themselves. :D

    Honestly, the one on the right is reasonably cute. I'm no chubby chaser, but as long as a girl's weight is not so extreme that it actually warps the human shape like can be seen in the 3 leftmost girls, then I don't find a girl's weight enters into how attractive the girl looks to me. Curviness on a girl neither automatically makes me more or less attracted to her.

    I didn't say she was the girl of my dreams, I just said she is reasonably cute. In other words, since I'm not turned off by some extra fat, what I see is... well let me keep this family forum friendly... I see a couple of nice attributes upstairs, smooth skin, and red hair (which I'm a complete sucker for).
