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).
