I was downloading a file from a Yahoo email account, I clicked on the download arrow & got the "what should firefox do with this file" window. Then I clicked on the [OK] button & did something with my fat fingers and the "Enter name of file to save" window came up & expanded to fill my whole screen. I don't like that & I want it to reduce in size again, how do I do that? What keys did my fat fingers accidentally press to get it to expand? WHat keys to I press to get it to reduce in size? (Ctrl - = does not work)

Thanks, Phil

Anyone have any ideas?

I know I did NOT double click on the title to get it to expand. This means there's some other key-combination that does it & it too might be a way of undoing it. The solution given is easy and works Thank-you, Franz_von_Suppe!

Alt+Space or right-clicking the title bar opens the window menu where you can resize the window.

Thanks again Franz_von_Suppe,

I can see myself hitting both Alt & Space on my laptop with my big thumb. Then, if I hit the key that was needed to expand the window, that would do it. With a big thumb and typing faster than I should for accuracy I can see this as a real possibility.
