Not able to control the maximize control on my firefox web browser.
I unmaximize the browser and close it out. When I log back on, it

Sometimes dopey things can stop that kind of problem, such as
un-maximise the browser, then grab a window border and resize the window
by some amount, then quit the program.
I've done that kind of thing, before, to tame a web browser. Perhaps
it's the window resizing that sets a parameter somewhere, clearing out
some peculiar problem.
It may depend on your desktop manager, too. I found the Gnome 3 (which
I don't use anymore), it liked to behave like a tablet computer, with
every program full screen, and a pain to use several programs

no point trying to privately email me, I only get to see the messages
