IE8 Not remembering window size - moved from general

Don't know if already mentioned, but what really drives me up the wall, is the way IE8 opens a new link window, only half window from top to the middle of the screen.

Yet another good reason to use FF.

IE8 is opening to it's last non-maximized windows size. Resize the window to your liking. Close it. IE8 will now open to your preferred non-maximized size. Yet another reason to use IE8.

IE8 remembers the last position in XP, but not in Windows 7 (in Vista neither). It opens always the same way, no matter what the last position was.
Harpua, I'm using FF already.

IE8 always remembers the last size and position in Windows 7, as it does in Vista. If you have some setting wrong or don't know how to use your software, please don't state that as a fact.

To resize a non-maximized IE8 windows, use the highlighted control. If you have more than on instance of IE8 open, the "properly" resized windows MUST be the last one you close.

I don't like the no spanning ability for multiple monitors. What was MS thinking? Windows 7 needs much better multiple monitor support.
