New window behavior change FF 29.0.1

New window behavior changed with FF 29.0.1. I have a custom page that I built that has a bunch of links to sites/pages that I visit frequently. Every one of the links on that page begins with <a target="_blank" href=" >

I typically keep this page maximized and until FF 29.0.1, when I clicked one of those links, it opened in a new maximized window. If I had the page restored instead of maximized, when I clicked one of those links it opened in a new restored window. In other words, the new window was opened in the same window state as the page from which I clicked the link. Now, when I click a link on a maximized window, it opens in restored view and I have to manually maximize it. It's a pain in the patoot.

I'd like to know how to change FF to return to the previous behavior and also why someone felt it was necessary to change this behavior.
