Need to remember to have brain fully running before asking questions.

For some reason I got a sudden flash of inspiration (well, only a 25 watt 
bulb).  With firefox open and maximized, right click on the top bar of the 
window.  This displays a menu.  Click on Advanced, Special Window Settings, 
Geometry, Size and then change the "Do Not Affect" to "Rember" and change the 
window resolution to what is desired (mine was 1024,733 -> 1024.768).  Then 
closed the session and it starts up the way I want.
