This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This is just a guess:
Start Firefox in a regular x session with a window manager, then full-screen the application (F11).
Close it and then try your x session without the window manager.
I'm assuming Firefox will remember its previous state.
Sorry to disappoint everyone with a bump and no solution, but i'm also interested in an answer to this as I just ran in to the problem myself. Did anyone find a way? I remember being able to get mozilla to resize, but firefox ignores everything I throw at it. I'll post back here if I do figure out something anyway.
It might be ok to use, i'll keep it in mind. The main problem I have currently is that the firefox window refuses to accept geometry, as in when the browser launches you cannot specify where you want it placed, or how large you want it to be. That would solve almost all of the problems i'm getting which i remember mozilla used to support it. Is the option solely blocked within firefox alone, or is it a global block?
