Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130917081302

Steps to reproduce:

Cause firefox to display restore dialog by non-graceful shutdown (terminate xserver or firefox) with a window tiled next to it. 

Restore session



Actual results:

Firefox paints a small window instead of using the whole screen. Issue can be mitigated by tiling another window next to firefox, where it will start drawing normally.


Expected results:

Firefox will restore tabs without worrying about window size or position on tiling window managers.

I have this issue using dwm and firefox 62.0, too.

It doesn't just happen when Firefox crashed though, it also happens when you just have "When Firefox starts" set to "Show your windows and tabs from last time". This bug is really annoying because it occurs every time you start Firefox with this setting enabled.

The fact that this bug was reported 5 years ago doesn't give me much hope that it will be fixed any time soon.
