OK, I've got a website that I visit regularly. It's fine in Firefox, but I prefer IE8. Here's the problem: When I go to this site, I have to click on a link to get where I want to go. This link opens up a new window (pop-up) but it is a small window,
and I cannot maximize it or re-size it at all. What am I missing and how can I get this pop-up window to resize?

Pop-up Window cannot be resized as they are displayed in a format used by the website to display it.
Check for the the maximize button on the upper right corner. If it is disabled or not present, we cannot maximize or re-size the window.
You can also use the snap feature in Windows 7 to drag the window upwards and check if it gets maximized.
I would also suggest you to follow these steps and check if it helps:
1. Open a webpage. Stretch it out to full-size. Don't use maximize.
2. Choose any link on that webpage and right-click> open in a new window.
3. Stretch that second window out to the desired size- don't use maximize.
4. Close the first IE window. Then close that second resized window.
Please respond back with the status of the issue and let us know if you have any issues.
