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.
Oh, forgot to mention that this was on mozilla build 20010614 running on a win98 machine

Created attachment 84995 [details] [diff] [review] 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.
