I deleted my localstore, but save file dialog box is still maximized and unresizable

Posted

I had this error once before, and I was able to google a solution, but it was a long time ago and I Forget the solution, and since then the seo on this issue has become poluted with useless information :(

I'm using firefox 17 but I don't think that matters.

Try double-clicking the title bar. That works on many resizable dialogs in Windows.

I assume that Alt+Space would open the System menu of that dialog?
