    Default Internet Explorer 6 Problem

    Hello, i have a problem with ie6, with opening windows. When i click on internet explorer icon it opens maximized which i like, but when i click on a link on a webpage it always opens up to be a maximized page, which it shouldnt be and even if i drag the window to be a regular medium sized page and then close it the next time i click on a link it always opens up to be a maximized page, and when i click on links that are supposed to make there own size like for example ( if you go to www.kingdomofloathing.com) and you click on the picture of an item it shows you a description for the item and it is supposed to only open up into a small box but on mine it justs puts it back all the way to max and cant change it (that was an example that happens to me on every link for anysite that i click on) and i saw that theres a way to repair ie if i have to but i can not see it in the list in add.remove programs.

    All help is needed and i use ie6 and windows xp sp2

    EDIT: i have tried firefox and this does not happen but i really wish to not use firefox because i like ie better.

    Personally, I would just go back to Firefox. I recently switched to Firefox and my internet has never been so stable. Plus Firefox is safer than IE6. I will never go back.

    Right click on you IE shortcut and just set it to run in "normal window". Whatever the site is set to open in will open that way. Not so huge yet not so small and it should remember. I agree with case on firefox. Only problem is many websites/servers are still based off of IE so many sites will not be viewed correctly.
