As I've been playing around with Firefox 3 Beta 2, I've noticed that it no longer seems to remember the last window size and location after a shutdown and restart in a maximized state. So if you size the browser window to something like 800x600 on your 1024x768 desktop and center it, if you maximize the browser, shut it down and restart it, when you attempt to un-maximize it, it doesn't go back to 800x600 in the center of your desktop, but rather switches to a size only slightly smaller than the size of the desktop. It's pretty annoying when you're used to switching back and forth between fully maximized and a very specific size and position when it isn't maximized, so I've written up Bugzilla bug #413022.

As a side note, it appears that my other recent bug, Bugzilla bug #411095, which involves an overly pesky blocked popup icon, may have been fixed. I'll have to try and verify that with a nightly build soon.

I wonder if they'll be quicker to fix that bug than the one I discovered recently, which appears to be a core bug from quite a few years ago.
