mozilla fullscreen startup


hello,
does anybody know how to tell mozilla to start up in fullscreen? i was told it should save the window pos+size when exiting with file->exit, but it doesn't, it always starts up with a strange size+pos. i was also told about a "-max" or "-height" and "-width" command line options, but they don't work. any suggestions what to do?

thanks
tom

the man pages for mozilla don't mentino a -max parameter, but height and width should work (although I can't say what the value should be). you might want to file a but if you're confident that they're borken.
depending on the window manager you're using, there may be an option to have it notice the mozilla window and maximize it
from what I've seen, mozilla can't start "fullscreen," but maximized shouldn't be a problem

doesn't work

well i tried "height" and "width" but it doesn't work. maximized is what i mean of course. i'm using kde3. well thats a really annoying problem i must say. if it would at least open up with nice proportions, but it just opens up completely messed up.

its odd, mozilla always opens the way I left it.
how did you specify the height and width?
kde should let you specify the window placement (I don't use kde, so this is a shot in the dark) try looking in the Look and Feel -> Window Behavior section of the KControl panel

ok, i have to add that i was using mandrake with mozilla, and everything worked fine. now i switched to gentoo, but i'm using the same mozilla profile than before, means i've just copied the whole .mozilla dir. i'm using the same hardware like under mandrake, also the same resolution and everything. do you perhaps know a good mozilla-specific forum? i didn't find one on mozilla.org. thanks for your help anyway :-)

there are several news groups for specific mozilla discussions. choose the most appropriate from those listed at http://www.mozilla.org/start/1.0/support.html (I suppose UNIX)

just to make sure we're on the same page, you did something like "mozilla -height 740 -width 480" ?
