How can I set up new windows it is maximized by default in Firefox 42?

For example, I get emails to eBay with daily search results. When I click on them using my computer upstairs, they open a new window, as desired, enlarged, as you wish. When I use a newer computer down, I get a new window as you wish, but it's always some ridiculously small window which I then maximize.

I tried right click on the shortcut of Firefox and setting Maximized. Nothing. I have bigger manually and then closed the window. Not to maximize the next new window. I am currently using the shift + click workaround, but it is irritating and unnecessary.

If there is a way to solve this problem, please let me know.

Try to rename (or delete) the file xulstore.json in the Firefox profile folder.

You can use this button to go to the current Firefox profile folder:

  • Help > troubleshooting information > profile directory: see file (Linux: open the directory;) Mac: View in the Finder)

  • How can I get a new Windows 7 product key for free?

    I am a person who has the life out of a well-being which means I have very limited funds for money to buy a new product key for my windows 7.  Now to say that I bought my laptop on the street market, and lucky me a friend bought me a new hard drive form my computer and I don't know what or how he got windows7 here but he did. With someone who doesn't have a credit card and life out of $500 a month, how can I get a new product key, which I can't afford and so I am unable to work

    Please if anyone can help it would be so appreciated.

    This means that you must install the original version of Windows shipped with your computer if you are not Windows 7. Otherwise, you will need to set up or ask a family friend or a member of the family gift that you register.

  • How can I change "open new window" tab behavior?

    I used to be a long time Firefox user and then switch to Chrome for a while. Come back now, and I notice some strangeness with tabs and "new windows". Can't understand how to work around.

    My "Home Page" is set up to open three tabs. A MSN, the second is my email, and the third is Google Calendar. It works fine, except...

    (1) if I choose 'New window' (Ctrl-N), it re-opens those same three tabs. When I open a new window, I don't want to reopen these three tabs. They are already open in the main window. How can I stop Firefox to do this? I can't find a way to get there.

    (2) the other door on the 'Home' button If I push the home button it loads all three of these tabs. In Chrome, there is another parameter for the 'home' vs the tabs start button. Is it possible to replicate this? Sometimes I hit the home button only to load MSN. I don't want all three of these tabs when I hit the home button. Any way around this?


    It is not possible.
    A new window opens to the home page (s), so you should set the home page to about: blank or create a bookmark to the defined location: virgins and hold the Shift key and left click to open this page in a new window.

    You can add these three pages to the command-line of the desktop shortcut to open the page when you start Firefox Firefox.

  • How can I get a new Windows 7 product key?

    original title: how to enter a new procuct key?

    After months of back and forth with Microsoft and Lenovo during activation of the computer, I finally have what I hope to be a valid product key.  The problem now is how to get in.

    The instructions I was given are right click on 'Computer', select 'Properties' and click 'change product key '.  Unfortunately, when I click "Change product key", nothing happens.  It highlights a link, the cursor changes, but it does nothing.

    I would try a repair installation, but still once, being a Lenovo, I don't have the actual Windows 7 disks, only a restore partition - which, once activated, restores the delivery as a condition of the computer - not very useful unless I want to erase all of my configuration and programs installed.

    Any ideas how to solve this problem?

  • How can I set the new tab to open like a blank page?

    I tried "how to turn the page on the new tab off?" in

    But still the new tab opens with (chrome://quick_start/content/index.html' "Quick start" and the words "Snap Deal" is already entered in the search bar.) See the capture screen.
    I need a blank page displayed when a new tab is opened.

    Unless this is possible, I spend my default browser.

    Thanks for the reply jscher2000.
    After posting the question, I uninstalled Firefox and then download new and installed. Still the problem remained.
    After about 2 hours I still once uninstalled, downloaded again and installed.
    This time it worked perfectly as before.
    So, now I don't have the problem.
    Thank you.

  • How can I set the new version of firefox so that the things that I write in journals and other things are stored in case I accidentally leave the page?

    In Firefov version 3, there is a feature that will remember what I typed in a journal or note the entry before posting. Is not like an auto-complete because test disappears if I browse pages too far from him. The usefulness of this one was that if accidentally, I sailed off the page before sending my message or my journal, I might just press the back button and what I wrote above would still be there. I had to go back to version 3.6.19 because version 5 does not have this option turned on, unless you preform a very specific routine. You will need to reactivate the ability of firefox to save the tabs when you exit. Then, you must close firefox while saving the tab with the page you want to write a journal about pulled up. Then, when you go back to firefox, you can tap on the saved page and if you accidentally leave it, you can press the back button and it is saved. However, it disappears when you refresh the page or try it on any other page. I would like to know if it would be possible for me to activate this feature in firefox 5, or if I should continue to use version 3.

  • How can I add a new e-mail account to the default section of Windows 8?

    I use OpenOffice to my office programs.  I need to send a presentation to someone on my email.  I use the e-mail account of Qwest.  I have an error bubble that says: "there are no associated messaging program to perform the requested action.  "Install an e-mail program or, if it is already installed, create a binding by default programs control panel" and then a second bubble opens with this message: "OpenOffice has been unable to find a work email configuration.  "Please save the document locally instead and fix of in your e-mail client" I tried to attach it to an email, but he won't.  I went into control panel of Windows 8 by default and it wont let me add my webmail for Qwest information.  Qwest has tried to work at their end, but they said everything was working from their side.  Configuration must be done on the side of Windows.

    Glad that you have installed it, and it worked very well.  Live Mail is always very well compatible with Windows 8 and recommended.

  • How can I set up my new Officejet Pro 8600 more printing on paper photo 4 x 6?

    How can I set up my new Officejet Pro 8600 more printing on paper photo 4 x 6?  I'm running on Windows 7 64 bit.

    It's strange.  Looks like you have a second paper tray and put it to the default tray.  The second paper tray only supports the types of paper that show on your list.  It's strange because unless you have purchased a second tray paper, plus model has one.  Does only the high-end model.  Other than that, only certain types of media can be duplex, so if you have double-sided printing, it can limit the selection.  I'll watch what else could be the cause and get back to you.

  • How can I set up Vista so that the PC does not switch to another window (for example the Spy Sweeper alerts) while I am playing a game?

    How can I set up Vista so that the PC does not switch to another window (for example the Spy Sweeper alerts) while I am playing a game?

    Vista is not in control of this technique. Spy Sweeper needs to have an option to control that. If this isn't the case, then it is badly programmed. Flight of focus (go to another window) when it is actually needed is a big no-no for the design. I find this option, if I were you :)
