Iceweasel doesn't remember last window size(maximum)


I use Iceweasel on one of my Debian's and I can't find the reason to why it doesn't remeber the last open window size(I prefer to have the browser at maximum), so what can be the issue here?

I've tried to:
Code:
~ $ rm -f /home/username/.mozilla/firefox/gez20ei6.default/localstore.rdf

what window manager and/or desktop environment do you use?

works fine on crunchbang (debian stable) with iceweasel 24.8.0.

Hi, I use KDM / KDE and it's in Debian Wheezy on an old 2005 model PC. And Iceweasel 32.0.3

i don't know why you removed that particular file -
try starting iceweasel with a new profile.
or "restart with addons disabled".

sometimes mozilla-based browser need resetting; at least they used to - i cannot find the setting right now. i think it was something like this: a config file gets corrupted and the browser sets it to read only. i might be totally wrong.

Thank's it worked like a charm.
I did:
Code:
mv ~/.mozilla/firefox/profiles.ini ~/.mozilla/firefox/profiles.ini.backup
And then started Iceweasel, tried a few times, and it always starts in the right(maximum) window position.
