Other browsers don't do this. You suck! :P Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch Mozilla with a clean (new) profile 2. Click the maximize widget to resize the browser window 3. Manually resize the browser window (to appropriate dimesions) *without* changing position 4. Quit and re-launch Mozilla Actual Results: When the browser starts up, the window will be the correct size, but will have shifted about an inch to the right. You have to manually re-position the window to be flush with the left edge of the screen every time you start Mozilla. Expected Results: Mozilla should correctly remember both the browser window size AND position. This is a Mach-O only issue (it didn't affect CFM builds). I think this issue did occur in the CFM build in ancient times (and was fixed), if somebody wants to go hunting for the old report. This should hold back 1.3 final (it's very annoying and there's no work-around).
Setting the blocking1.3? flag. This issue was also present in earlier (nightly) Mach-O builds (prolly always been there). Fix me, fix me! (Apparently, the Bugzilla helper doesn't let you set keywords or flags. Who'da thunk it?)

We stop saving window position to persistent store when a window is zoomed to the Standard state. So following the steps to reproduce exactly, in step 4 Mozilla's first window is opened to its new size but in the same position as before it was zoomed. However there's another bug. The hardwired window border constants in nsMacWindow are incorrect for standard OSX windows, and the fix for bug 162090 and bug 162029 prevents new windows from being positioned even partly off-screen. These two things prevent new windows from opening less than four pixels from the left edge. So this patch saves the window's position just as it's coming back to the User state. It also calculates the window border widths using the nifty new OS8.5+ APIs. Last, it junks nsMacWindow::mIsDialog; a member variable related to this whole mess whose value was never anything but false.

Does this have ramifications for bug 181687?
