    A few days ago Firefox switched to opening windows about 1/2 size and located at the bottom left of the screen. I assume I did something, but I don’t know where to look in about:config to fix this. Can someone help?

      a similar thing is affecting mine. It ignores the window setting from the last time it was open.

      Does this correct if you Restore Up (‘full screen’), and Close? Then re-Open.

      Windows is remembering that the window for ‘this program’ was last closed as a reduced-sized window. “So the user prefers this program in a smaller size? OK, I can do that.”

        Nope. Not even restore to full screen, close Firefox, close Windows and restart helps.

      What Version of Firefox and what Version of Windows are you using?

      We're getting Sticker Shock everywhere now, not just car dealers.

      about:config setting privacy.<wbr />resistFingerprinting if set to true will make Firefox always open in a non-full screen window

      This also controls a group of other settings related to fingerprinting.

      Yes, I changed that setting. It would be nice to have known of this side effect, but I can certainly live with it for the added protection I’m getting.
