The easiest solution I can think of is resize the windows manually (Alt+drag with right mouse button). If you have your personal settings backed up most of the applications will save the dimensions automatically.
Otherwise, you'll need to change some config files. Most applications that accept a commandline geometry setting can be forced to a particular geometry in /home/dsl/.Xdefaults
Those that don't read these settings probably have their own configuration file somewhere in /home/dsl. For example, Dillo can be configured in .dillorc
Still there are others that don't respect the conventional Linux methods of configuration, such as Firefox, and you're left having to manually resize the windows every time.
Still another option is to try out one of the window managers that don't allow windows to be resized beyond the screen borders. Ratpoison and wmii are two that come to mind.
