Firefox 29, windows 7, when I click on a link that opens in a new window, it will not be in the maximized state. If I maximize the window, then close it, Firefox will not remember it and the next time I open a new window it is not maximized. I do not use tabs, this is for when a new window in opened by clicking a link.

Hi there. The primary window, the one that you started on, was it full screen or minimized?

Okay, we'll start simple.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} While you are in safe mode; Press the <Alt> or <F10> key to bring up the tool bar.. Then Tools > Options > Advanced > General. Look for and turn off Use Hardware Acceleration.

Poke around safe web sites and see if there is still a problem. Then restart.
