Firefox command line -width -height broken
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040212 Firefox/0.8 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040212 Firefox/0.8 type "./firefox -h" and several potentially userfull command line options will be shown, including -width and -height. They don't, however, work. I'm trying to run firefox without a window manager, for a Kiosk application. This will work fine if firefox can be told to open a specific size window, and drop right into fullscreen mode (F11). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. run "firefox -h" 2. run "firefox -width 1024 -height 768" 3. run "firefox -width 1024 -height 768 -fullscreen" Actual Results: firefox opens with a different size window. Expected Results: It would be great for firefox to offer command line options for fullscreen mode, and for width and height of the initial window.
Workaround: edit localstore.rdf in the profile directory: <RDF:Description RDF:about="chrome://global/content/viewSource.xul#main-window" sizemode="normal" height="768" width="1024" screenX="0" screenY="0" />
chrome://global/content/viewSource.xul#main-window should probably be changed to chrome://browser/content/browser.xul#main-window E.g. <RDF:Description RDF:about="chrome://browser/content/browser.xul#main-window" sizemode="normal" height="768" width="1024" screenX="0" screenY="0" />
From #269140: The width and heigt options do work if i comment out LoadSizeFromXUL(); on line 936 of mozilla/xpfe/appshell/src/nsXULWindow.cpp
Bryce: Bug 226034 is about -fullscreen, which is a slightly different problem than the other flags you mentioned here.
Summary: Firefox command line -width -height broken. No -fullscreen for operation without window manager → Firefox command line -width -height broken

Why does it say "resolved"???? I can't get it to work at all in windows 7.
Works for me with 2013-05-20-03-12-30-mozilla-central-firefox-24.0a1.en-US.linux-x86_64.
