Netscape 4 had an option to start the browser in an iconified state. Mozilla doesn't have that. It's not listed in any of the available options. Any chance that can get added back?
->trudelle for triage.
Moz on Windows already has this feature, and it is called -turbo. File under "platform parity"?
There is already a bug covering -turbo on linux, but this sounds a bit different, so ->future.
This seems to be a general problem regardless of the platform. On Windows, Mozilla ignores the standard "Start minimized" option. On UNIX, it ignores window manager hints and command line options to make it start iconified or in a specific screen. This should be addressed as a general problem of Mozilla ignoring standard window-system configuration and just doing its own thing.
Mass moving all of my open Nav/toolkit bugs to new owner.
