From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020721 BuildID: 2002072104 When I close the browser and reload it, Mozilla doesn't remember the window position. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start Mozilla 2. Position browser window 3. Close Mozilla 4. Restart Mozilla, note that browser window is not where you left it. Actual Results: Browser window is at the default location Expected Results: Browser window should be in the same position it was last time I searched all the bugs, and it looks like all of the one regarding window position are closed as duplicates. However, I couldn't find one that matched what was going on here, so I created a new bug. Apologies if this is a dupe. Running 1.1beta (as the build ID indicates)
WFM 2002081209 (Windows 2000). Reporter, can you try with a newer build?
Summary: Mozilla doesn't remember window position → Browser window doesn't remember window position
Using 2002081204 on WinXP I see same behavior. I tried a newer build, but it screwed up my profile so bad I uninstalled it.
Correction - I see different behavior. It seems the browser window is restored to correct position every other time it is launched. I launch Mozilla, it starts in UL corner. I move it to desired position. Close Mozilla. Start Again, it is in desired position. Close Mozilla. Start again. It is in UL corner. Repeat...
Using 1.1-latest (20020818) on Win32, it seems this bug has been fixed for me. Can others confirm?
Ok, on a Win2k machine, running 20020823 (from 1.1-latest) and it doesn't remember the position. What is going on here?
Uninstall. Reinstall. Create a new profile. Run that profile and see what happens.
I'll try to do this soon when I get some time. In general I am irritated by the lack of interest in maintaining profile compatibility/integirty evidenced by mozilla. It seems there exists a disregard for the average user who just wants things to work. I don't know how many times I have had to rebuild my profiles since I started using Mozilla fulltime at M18. I can't be the only one that has these problems, and I can't be the only one that cares about it. I started this profile clean in 1.0 around 2 months ago. What could possibly be wrong with it?
in theory, "the average user" isn't supposed to be using mozilla, they should be using netscape or something else aimed at end users. having said that, the screwyness with profiles isn't good. however, reports like this aren't really helpful in improving it - developers need to know what breaks things, not that it doesn't work when it's broken. resolving WORKSFORME. if you can reproduce the problem with a recent build of mozilla, please reopen this bug. thanks.
