Bug Description

Firefox is not remembering the window size and position between close and restart any more.

It worked during my last tests before release of Oneiric - so this must be broken since one of the latest updates.

At least window size is remembered now after another reboot.

Probably position wasn't remembered even before.

Martin,

We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to review all reported bugs in a timely manner. You reported this bug some time ago and there have been many changes in Ubuntu since that time.

We'd like to close this bug report due to its age and long period of inactivity so please let us know if you still see a problem which is related to the one that was reported.

If we do not hear from you this bug report will expire in approximately 60 days time.

Thank you for helping make Ubuntu better.

Is obsolete. I am on 18.04 in the meantime - also had issues with window size and position here, but could be solved by:

gsettings set org.gnome.mutter edge-tiling false
gsettings set org.gnome.shell.overrides edge-tiling false
gsettings set org.gnome.mutter auto-maximize false
