When opening FF via a link, the window doesn't open maximized

more options

If I start Firefox with a shortcut I have no problems, but if the browser isn't already opened, and I click a link in IRC, email etc. the browser starts in a window instead.

Simply maximizing the window and then closing the browser doesn't fix it, since it only seem to remember the window position and size as long as it's not maximized. Going into properties of the shortcut and setting it to start maximized (it already is) doesn't change anything, since as I said, the problem is only when opening the browser via a link and not a shortcut.

That's normal behavior for Windows, I think.

It's possible there is an add-on to address this specific issue. If not, I wonder whether someone could craft a GreaseMonkey userscript that would be able to intelligently address this situation (i.e., it has to work on any site, but only if it's the only page open).
