In pre-Windows XP SP2, the code below works correctly. After upgrading to XP Service Pack 2, using this code in the Homepage section causes Internet Explorer to abruptly close upon startup.
Here is a workaround - courtesy of Tony Talmage
Create a local HTML file with the Window resizer code, such as the one below:
<!-- saved from url=(0025)http://www.winxptutor.com --> <html><head> <title></title>
resizeTo(800,600); moveTo((window.width-800)/2,(window.height-600)/2); document.location.href = 'http://www.winxptutor.com'; </script> </head>
