Issue = Firefox Load screen-position

I find Firefox loads in Windows 7 at the Right of the screen and half obscured. It means I am often delayed trying to drag the window central, as grabbing the top bar is difficult.

Grabbing this help session bar was almost impossible for example its so thin.

How do I get Firefox to load central screen every time automatically in Windows 7 please.

Window sizes and positions are stored in localstore.rdf in the Profile Folder.

Delete localstore.rdf or rename the file to localstore.rdf.sav in the Profile Folder to test if the file is corrupted.
See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Corrupt_localstore.rdf
(caution: do not delete the localstore.rdf file in the Firefox program installation folder)

Note:
Deleting the file localstore.rdf will reset the customizations of the toolbars to the defaults.
You can rename "localstore.rdf" to "localstore.rdf.sav" to test if that solves it.
Then you can restore the customization by copying "localstore.rdf.sav" to "localstore.rdf" if it didn't work.
