When I set the option privacy.resistFingerprinting to true Firefox stops remembering Window Size. I had to turn it off because it kept opening up using only half the screen. The browser window could not remember browser size.

Why use the privacy.resistFingerprinting preference if you are going to use a very unique useragent anyways.

Where does useragent come into this topic? I was only talking about the window size. I have since turned it off and using the extension Trace to help protect my fingerprint without messing up Window Size. When using multi-monitors and different desktops Window Size is too important of a feature to lose so I have disabled this fingerprint option. That is the only problem I had with it.. I wish there was an option not to change window size when using the built in resist fingerprinting.
