Default Windows automatically maximize when opened up(help please)

Hi, I use mozilla firefox but when I first click on the brower to open it up it is in window mode and I always have to go click the maximize button. How do I set it up so that when I open the browser it is already automatically maximized.

'Thanks

Hmm, it should remember the setting when you close it. I have never had a problem with this before. I wonder if there is some setting in the browser....

Edit: I don't see any option that saves that setting...

Try this....open it up, maximize it, and then close it again.

Then open it up and see if it's kept the setting.

Hmm... I can't figure out why it'd do that either...

I tried checking in Settings...nothing.

I even tried to check for maybe a config file that autosaves a specific setting for Window control, but couldn't find one.
