Steps to reproduce:

I open thunderbird (for me icedove on debian) and I maximize the window
by dragging it to the top (gnome-shell). Then I close thunderbird.


Actual results:

When I start again thunderbird, it does not start in a maximized size
but only covers 75% of my screen (like at the first start).


Expected results:

Thunderbird should remember and starts with a maximized window. This
problem occurs also when I maximize with the button (if I add a
maximized button to windows in gnome-shell with gnome-tweak-tool).

To force creation of a new file localstore.rdf with:

mv ~/.icedove/XXXXX(profile)/localstore.rdf ~/.icedove/XXXXX(profile
)/localstore-old.rdf

(put .thunderbird instead of .icedove if you are not using debian)

seems to work. At the first startup of thunderbird/icedove I maximized
the window and closed with CTRL+Q and the window starts maximized after
that.

In fact, the solution of comment #2 only works if I close thunderbird
with Ctrl+Q. If I close it with Alt+F4 with the X button, thunderbird
will start not-maximized.

delete ~/.icedove/XXXXX(profile)/localstore.rdf is a workaround and I
don't know what was the problem in this file at the first time.

I tried it and with a monitor resolution of 1366*768 it starts occupying around 75% of the screen.
