Firefox initially opens filling my 27" monitor. How can I get it to open smaller?

Posted

Starting up Firefox on a web page it completely fills my 27" monitor. After dragging the window to about a third of that, subsequent windows stay at that size. After turning off Firefox and reopening it, it reverts back to that monitor-filling size. How can I get it to stay at the smaller size?
