Windows Freezing, Automatic Drop Problem

I went to get in my car this morning and windows were frozen. Obviously the window wouldn't drop automatically like its supposed to. I forced the door open and closed it once I got it. My question is does this mess up the weather stripping seal? And what's the best way to unfreeze the window before opening the door? Ice scraper didn't do the trick....
Thanks, Tyler

Vaseline around the seals and they make a ice melting spary for windows I would try that or pour luke warm water on it

Even better a hair dryer to thaw them out should help.

I don't think opening it like that should hurt anything on ocasion. Just don't make a habit of it. Try the hair dryer.
