Enable JavaScript. (tools > options > content)
Make sure scripts can resize windows. (tools > options > content > advanced JavaScript options)

Type javascript:top.resizeTo(600,400) into Location Bar. Hit enter.

You can also make a bookmarklet* and place it on the Bookmarks Toolbar, so you don't have to type it more than once. (*bookmarks that contain JavaScript content are called bookmarklets)

Note: If your screen resolution is set to 1024 X 768 then those are the numbers you type in the brackets separated by a comma. Using your profile's screen resolution will reset the Firefox window to (almost) full screen.
