The "xulstore" window resizing problem

Since some time, Firefox (currently 89.0) on Windows 10 automatically reduces the window size from "fullscreen" to "maximized" when re-opening it from another program. So I have to wait until the window size reduction is complete before having to re-enlarge it again (which is quite annoying)

After a short web search, it turned out that this window size reduction is caused by the "xulstore.json" file in the profile folder and several other users are also reporting this issue. However, none of them in the forums I visited knew a permanent solution. I unsuccessfully tried the following:

  • When I delete "xulstore.json", the window size reduction problem goes away only to re-appear after a few re-openings of Firefox (as the xulstore file is re-established then).
  • Editing the xulstore file did not work, as Firefox overwrites it.
  • Denying Firefox writing permission (via Windows) also doesn't work, as Firefox creates a temporary copy of the xulstore file which again causes the resizing problem.
  • Denying access to this temporary copy does not work either.

It seems like Firefox does everything possible just to keep the resizing problem persisting. Is there any permanent solution (different from the failed solution attempts above)? Or even better: could you remove the automatic resizing in a coming version update of Firefox? It seems like I am not the only one who would be grateful about this.

Since we can now give feedback on mozilla.crowdicity.com , I'm still confused how they deal with "ideas". I've submited my idea almost 3 weeks ago, it still says "Your idea is currently awaiting moderator review. Once approved, it will be visible to all users" and is still hidden. Other ideas I see that have been submitted at the same time as mine are already reviewed and published. So the only thought that comes to mind is that some ideas are just ignored on purpose without any result or feedback. Is there any way to contact moderators of that platform? Has anyone resolved such problems with their "ideas" and how?

I did install Firefox a few weeks ago, have what I think is the same issue as described in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1280908.

Youtube playback works perfectly fine until I forward twice in a row, as I normally do when entering the "sponsored" section of a video. When the playback playback dies I have to reload the video to make the playback start again - but if I use the arrow buttons on the keyboard to forward then playback dies again the second time I press the button.

Please let me know if there are anything I can do to get it fixed.

The Firefox Community here has tried to be very helpful with all the users who hate the changes in Version 89/90, but we need Mozilla/Firefox to hear us.

CSS work-arounds are fine for the IT-literate, which I am not. They are also only temporary. We have no indication that FF is even paying attention to our complaints.

They need to understand that some users have a keyboard and mouse attached to a PC, not a touchscreen like on a pad or phone. It looks like FF wants to cater to touchscreens. This DOES NOT WORK for PC users.

I suggest one UI for touchscreens and a different one for PCs. IIRC, there is a FF version for Windows AND a different one for Apple; why not do the same?

Nobody seems to have any response other than "use this CSS fix." I've also been directed to "clean up the help platform myself" - huh?

Can we please get SOME kind of response from the platform itself? Or are they just trying to get rid of all users without touchscreens?

For HULU when I enter my log in info and try and check the I'm not a robot box it wont load then I get an error (Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, www.google.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it.

FF auto-updated to 89.0.1, now a site won't work, would like to RESTORE deleted/cleared COOKIES (?!?!) for that site to see if it will help cuz deleted the cookie for it made things worse! Doesn't work under Private FF session either!!

Specifics: I am the Webmaster of (we use WIX to create/manage it) 12cdrc.org and it is working fine using Edge, Chrome, Brave, but no longer works correctly (since 89.0.1, I think happened late last night early this morning on my system) update. Most of the page loads, but the Calendar and display tweets sub-windows will not load! It will be obvious to all where they should be displaying but are not!

So, I tried removing 12cdrc.org cookies. Things got worse! Now the Login won't work either, where I was logged in as my user for the site prior to that.

I tried a Private window/session, and the Login function does work, the Calendar does show, but the tweets sub-section/window still does not display/function.

Background: This is not the first website to malfunction using Firefox... Previous version updates broke the rescuemichigan.com website (none of the pull-down menu functions work, but work fine on/with Brave, Chrome, Edge)! Also mewe.com acts up using FF at times, but a clear of the mewe.com related cookies and relogin at mewe via FF clears up the issues of things not wanting to display correctly or fully on mewe using FF - which is why I thought clearing 12cdrc.org cookies would help in this case (but did not, again, made the malfunctioning worse)!

This makes little sense. I even tried doing D/L of full 89.0.1 install, didn't help.

I'd like to try and RESTORE COOKIES (last thing I want to do is clear all data/cookies for FF) for 12cdrc.org from manual offload of all my userid appdata folder/sub-folders to an external drive (or perhaps appdata backup to Norton cloud backup done a few weeks ago)! But I do not know where to look. Was about to go to my external drive and do complete file search of "12cdrc*.*" to see what would return when I thought I could search Mozilla/FF Help on "Restore Cookies" but only very old question for very old version of FF showed up and it said "IF STILL NEED HELP ASK NEW QUESTION" so here I am doing so!!!

Again, all sites (12CDRC.org, MeWe.com, and RescueMichigan.com) ALL WORK 100% error/issues free using Brave, Chrome, Edge, so this is FIREFOX SPECIFIC and all these issues have started under/after recent FF updates and/or gotten worse, not fixed/better, under updates/upgrades!!!!

Appreciate any Help... 1) like I said, where the Cookies are hidden that I might then recover them from previous save 2) other suggestions?!?!?!

For the last week or so I've been having a frequent problem with YouTube not loading-see attached screen shot. Sometimes reloading the page works, but, not all the time. Cookies and cache are cleaned several times a day. I have the same issue, but, much less frequently in Chrome. So I'm not sure if this is a browser problem or a YouTube problem. I appreciate anyone's comments. Thanks
