1. I had the same problem with my new version of BBEedit, until I 
discovered that there is a 'save default window' setting that allows 
you to specify where orphan windows are opened and how big they are. 
This would be a great improvement for the FB editor, and I don't 
imagine it's too hard to do.

2.  BBEedit version 9 keeps a record of all document windows that it 
opens and then saves in a global Plist file, and then restores them 
when they're opened again. This, combined with item number 1 is a 
good solution, but quite a bit messier to implement.  Note that this 
implementation was previously done by adding a resource to the file, 
but that approach is outdated now.
