There are actually two bugs here:

  • r4274 fixes an important bug which caused the symptoms in this bug: firefox updates its window title when we create a new tab and that drops us out of maximized state
  • unfixed: we do not properly synchronize the "maximized" state between the client and server. At the moment this is only set as a client_property which is sent to the server but not used directly there: the server does not propagate this to its own model... and so as far as the server is concerned, it isn't maximized, it is just very big. Fixing this is non-trivial though.. so this will have to do for now.

Please confirm that this fixes your issue - and more importantly that it does not cause any undesired side-effects with the other metadata properties that could be affected by the change:

  • window icons
  • window title


Then I can apply to the 0.10.x branch asap.

It appears to have fixed the problem. Probably needs more testing to be sure but I will update when I have done so.

I can't find any side-effects with this fix. should be good to 0.10.x
