    Rub rain-x washer fluid on the inside edge. It contains some wierd thing that does not allow Ice to stick to windshield (glass). You may have to repeat that few times if you open a window a lot

    I put some Vaseline inside of the window seal at the top of the window and have never had issues with them getting stuck. My only other suggestion would be to roll the window all the way up and pulse them down one notch so they are not cracked but not right on the window seal.

    I think this is the only option to consider. Everything else would be temporary fixes.
