Description

17 years ago
I noticed this while testing the fix to bug 50424, but I don't think the bugs 
are related.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a single browser window and maximize it.

2a. Minimize the browser window.
2b. -or- hit Show Desktop on the taskbar.

3a. Close the browser window and restart Mozilla.
3b. -or- activate a shortcut to mozilla.exe.

Result:           A new restored browser window opens.
Expected result:  A new maximized browser window opens.

Note: if I drag a shortcut to mozilla.exe to the taskbar and click on it while 
Mozilla is running, I do get a maximized window.

Another way to see this bug:

Open a maximized mozilla window (no content needed)
Open a new maximized mozilla window (ctrl-n or such)
Minimize one of the mozilla windows
From the lone maximized window hit ctrl-n to create a third window
This third window will be 'restored' when it logically should be 'maximized'

Quite an annoying bug.

It looks to me like a remnant of the bug(s) of yore that concerned new windows
never opening maximized (ala IE).  But hey, I fully realize that I know nothing.

don't persist minimized state

The thing to do is not persist the minimized state. That way it'll continue to
persist the previous state, whether it was maximized or normal.
