Thread: Firefox restores when an external link loads

  1. Firefox restores when an external link loads

    When I click a link in Thunderbird or some other application, Firefox
    restores to the last smaller sized window, forcing me to maximize it,
    again. Does anyone know of anyway to prevent this?

    I can confirm - for some reason the last couple of days, FF had been
    being restored from a minimized state from links in TB to a
    3/4-of-the-screen sized window.
    I'd never noticed this behaviour before, but surely it must have been
    due to me resizing the window recently. If you stretch the unmaximized
    borders all the way to the screen edge, it will remember the setting for
    next time. But that's not really the point, it should restore to maximized.

    It's Bug# 232959, Opened: 2004-02-03, Status: NEW.

    I just voted for it..

    I too noticed the annoying behaviour during the last few days (but not
    before).

    I wonder if it could be related to an extension update?

    One problem: the window is already maximized, not minimized.

    Ah, that is different then.. mine is only if I've minimized Firefox
    first (from maximized).
    I wonder, does it do it if you close Firefox and then start it in
    Firefox -Safe-mode (link in your FF Start Menu folder) ??

    Also, what happens if you (with FF maximized), you right-click on FF in
    your taskbar and choose 'minimize' and then right-click again and
    'maximize' ? Does it restore to maximized?

    I can't tell because it doesn't do it every time.

    FWIW I don't have this problem. I have set FF maximized, then minimized
    it - no problem. Then set it to various sizes, minimized and clicked a
    link in TB - opened in correct size. Using TB 1.5 and FF 1.5 on win XP
    SP2.

    I think opening FF in Safe Mode is a good idea; if that doesn't solve
    it try opening both FF and TB in Safe Mode.
