That can result in all Firefox windows opening maximised - including the 
download manager and the save dialog. The way I discovered is to drag 
the Firefox window edges to the screen edges (maximising manually, NOT 
by using the maximise button) - the middle window control button will 
then change from "maximise" to the "restore" icon. Then close Firefox 
and next time you open it, it starts maximised.
