    I'm a newbie here and I'm having a weird problem with Safari resizing and moving the window to the wrong position. Could anyone help me?

    Steps to reproduce my problem (on Snow Leopard 10.6.8):

    1. Launch Safari, hit the zoom button.
    2. Quit Safari.
    3. Reopen Safari.
    4. Hit zoom button. The browser windows resizes and moves behind the dock leaving only the upper part of the window visible.

    Hold the Option key and click the green button in the upper left corner of the Safari window.

    Sorry it doesn't work.. When I said zoom button I meant the green button in the left corner of the window.

    And you clicked that button while holding down the Option key?

    Thanks for replying. Yes, I did as you said but I didn't see a difference. As i've described above, hitting the green button the first time expands the window correctly. Afterwards if I restart Safari and hit the button again to shrink the window, Safari moves the entire window off the screen.

    It's not a big problem but it's surely annoying.
