Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-utils

Ubuntu 10.10.

Expected result:

Get good look on search results.

Actual results:

Frustrated scrolling to every direction.

The initial Window size is too small (1920x1200 screen) and Folder column is cut off. The user needs to do lot of unnecessary resize, scrolling, etc. for browsing the search results.


1) Maximize the window on launch

2) Have 640 x 400 size on launch

3) Adjust window size dynamically on launch (80% of screen size)
