How do I get Firefox to open EVERY page FULL size, ALL the time, as though I clicked the box on top ?!?

If privacy.resistFingerprinting is true, windows will open to a smaller non-full size. It could be something else but that is one thing to check.

No such setting
1) I'm using a real computer, not a phone
2) This is a Ubuntu system, Firefox 70.0 (64-bit)

I don't think you can.
As in I don't think Mozilla has figured out how to do this.
And, they may even purposely not open all windows full-screen, for "performance" reasons (less to display, less to draw...).

Oh, & I'm talking more about when opening FF from Session Restore, mainly.


(Likewise, FF can't seem to be able to restore the ordering of windows, from Session Restore, along the [Windows] taskbar.
You know, something one would actually expect to happen, consistently. Something you would think they could figure out how to accomplish...)

Have you started Firefox in full screen, does it have any affect on the opened windows?
