Description of problem:
Mozilla will discard its previously saved browser window size if a hyperlink is
clicked in a Mozilla Mail email message and there is not a browser window
already open. It reverts to a default size of 615 x 479 pixels, and this window
size is retained when the browser window is closed and reopened so that the user
must resize the window on the next session.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a Mozilla browser window and set it to a size larger than the default.
I used 860 x 720.
2. Close all Mozilla browser windows.
3. Open a Mozilla Mail window and click on a hyperlink in an email message.
Actual Results: Mozilla opened a browser window at the default size of 615 x
479, and this size was retained for future sessions.
Expected Results: The browser window should open at the last size set by the
user, not the default window size.
I think this is still a problem with 1.0.1.
Yes, it's still happening with mozilla-1.0.1-23 from rawhide for me.
