Bug Description

Story: this is a detail I noticed while testing bug fix for LP: #1312892 in webbrowser silo 2504. If the user wants to resize/move/close the window only with the mouse it might remember the size and will work right, but using keyboard shortcuts to resize/move/close like ctrl+super+arrows and alt+F4 can make it fail.

Environment: unity8-deb session on zesty+silo 2504

Test case 1

1. Open webbrowser and press ctrl+super+up arrow to maximize
2. Close webbrowser with the mouse or alt+F4
3. Open webbrowser again and check the window size

Expected result: webbrowser appears maximized
Current result: on first boot webbrowser appears with its normal/by default size

Test case 2

1. Open webbrowser and press ctrl+super+right arrow to put it on the right edge
2. Close webbrowser with the mouse or alt+F4
3. Open webbrowser again and check its size and position

Expected result: webbrowser should open next to the right edge
Current result: webbrowser does not start oon the right edge
