One of my two Firefox windows is stuck halfway offscreen

I'm running Vista, fully updated. I have two windows open in firefox, both with a dozen or so tabs. I was shifting them around, and accidentaly moved one about halfway off screen. Now it's stuck there, and whenever I try to move it back, it moves slightly, then freezes and won't let me do anything until I hit ctrl-alt-del; then when I hit cancel and get back to my desktop, the window has gone back to it's original offscreen position. I've tried closing everything, running C-Cleaner, and restarting my computer, but no luck. The window comes back in the same place and glitches the same when I try to move it. I can move the other Firefox window without problems, as well as Word and Digsby windows. Any ideas?

In Task manager, Applications tab, you can right click each Firefox window and select to 'maximize' it.

You can launch Task Manager by CTRL+ALT+DEL.

Thanks, I had no idea you could do that.

It seems to have fixed whatever the glitch was, because even though at first it refused to restore down, when I tried it again a few minutes later it restored down and let me move it around just fine. Odd.
