If you want a window smaller than fullscreen, you /must/ specify
dimensions. You may do so in mythfrontend's Appearance settings by
specifying GUI Height and GUI Width.
Or, from the console, use:
mythfrontend -geometry 1280x720
mythfrontend -geometry 640x480+300+200
or whatever. I'm also assuming you've already specified "Run the
frontend in a window" (also in Appearance settings).
