Hello, I would like a way to save firefox browsers screen size and position. Currently, my firefox browser opens in full screen mode. Thank you.  Mike

Making moves

Sounds more like a setting problem. Try the following:

Press F11 to bring Firefox out of Fullscreen mode.

Set window to desired size by dragging edges.

Exit Firefox while NOT in fullscreen mode by going to File > Exit

Whilst Firefox is closed check the shortcut properties:

  • Right click on shortcut icon and select 'Properties'
  • Run: select 'Normal Window'
  • Click on 'Apply'
  • click on 'OK'

Start Firefox.

Does this fix the issue?

Thanks for the input. I should have mention my problem is on Ubuntu Linux with Firefox installed via snap.
This is from  my machine:

Once again, Thanks for your input.
