    Browser change size by itself sometimes

    It's Chromium.

    When it changes size, it shrinks to really small. It happens when I open the browser for the first time.

    It happens on rare occasion only but I'm wondering why and how to stop it.

    I have Ubuntu 11.04 btw.

    I don't know what is causing it but if you have compizconfig-settings-manager there is an option to open a window with a specific size.

    ccsm > Window Management > Window Rules > Size Rules tab.

    You can 'grab' the window class (such as 'chromium') and then specify the size for chromium windows.

    Sounds easy till I realized I have no way of knowing its width and height since I do it by sight only.

    So, is there a way to get its width and height?

    I got it. I just tried a few times and got the size right.

    Thanks for the help.
