I think this is intentional since if you don't now the alt+mouse
combination, you can never get rid of the window again (unless you
know how to use a terminal). It's a bug with Mozilla. It should not
use windows that are too large for the screen. Report it on

They do remember their size. They don't remember maximisations though.
I don't know whether this is a bug or not. You could try reporting it
on under nautilus. But maximising windows is really
a bad Windows habit, IMHO. X is not intended to be used that way.

Suggest it on nautilus-list or report in Bugzilla.

It's shown here, with Gnome 2.8 on Debian. At least with local
folders, I don't know about remote folders. The proof is here:

I believe that's the case.
