Well, it *is* a mozilla problem. ;-)

Mozilla saves the window size, without paying attention to the maximization state. 
Not metacity's fault. Moz has access to the maximization state if it wants to
use it.

I've updated nautilus, etc from rawhide (latest packages to Jan 10), but the
problem still

Comment 4 Warren Togami 2003-01-21 08:00:53 UTC
Still exists in Phoebe2.

Comment 5 Elton Woo 2003-01-24 18:56:35 UTC
I was hoping that this would be fixed by now, but it still persits in Phoebe2

Comment 6 Elton Woo 2003-02-26 05:21:52 UTC
Also still present in "original" Phoebe 3 (RH 8.0.94). I have not looked in
rawhide yet for any possible fixes.

I have created a jpeg attachment to Bug#85819 which seems to be related to *this*

Comment 8 Elton Woo 2003-11-02 20:55:30 UTC
This appears to have been fixed in Fedora Core. I respectfully submit
that this should be closed.
