startup window size wrong
496 bytes, text/html
Mozilla M11, Red Hat Linux 6.0, kernel 2.2.5, glibc 2.1.* Installed as mere mortal (under my $HOME, not a system dir, not installed as root) Each time mozilla is started, the browser window opens up smaller than before. I can find no cmdline arg to set the X geometry, and no way to save the size. I can't even find the file (if any) that's saving geometry info; after I run mozilla and do a find -mtime -1 I pick up nothing. This isn't a show stopper by any means, but it is really annoying.
It's always starting up as 330x330 for me. There's an existing bug on window size (bug 17799), but this is a new regression.
I've found exactly one case where the browser saves window size. It's when there's a popup window created with a JS window.open command like window.open("http://www.mozilla.org/", "name", "width=800,height=775,toolbar=yes,menubar=yes,status=yes"); and then the window that was opened is closed after the window that opened it. cc:ing danm. This bug is in the Browser-General queue. If it's yours, take it.
Reassigning all of leger's unscreened Browser-General bugs to email@example.com for pre-screening and triage.
Assigning to danm, since he deals with window size issues.
