Default windows won't go down

Has anyone had trouble with the windows not
going down in cold weather.Went to the bank
the car was cold and it was 0 outside, the drivers window
would not roll down. After the car warmed up they
worked fine.

I have had mine work in -F temps as long as windows are clear. Could there have been ice on the window? If there's ice, no, it won't open.

This is what may have happened. When the inside of the car is warm and the outside is cold a bit of moisture condensation occurs on the inside of the glass, especially around the edges between the glass and the rubber weather seal. When the car is sitting empty and not heated in very cold temperatures, the moisture between the glass and the weather seal freezes and won't let the window go down, even a power window. When the car warms up the ice melts and the windows work again.
