When I open a new chrome or chromium or firefox browser - the window automatically is set to maximize and it’s remarkably annoying. I came across an Ubuntu forums on how this can be solved, but the command doesn’t seem to work in Fedora Silverblue. Ubuntu Forum: How do I disable auto-maximizing of newly launched windows in GNOME? - Ask Ubuntu
Here’s the command:
gsettings set org.gnome.mutter auto-maximize false
Here’s the CLI response in Fedora 34 Silverblue:
(process:19476): dconf-WARNING **: 15:37:53.817: failed to commit changes to dconf: Failed to execute child process “dbus-launch” (No such file or directory)
I figured this would be a Gnome Software thing and not specific to Ubuntu or Fedora. It’s literally been one year and I’ve gone form Fedora 33 Workstation to Fedora 34 Silverblue and still can’t seem to figure this out ha! Hoping someone can help b/c it’s quite frustrating and annoying.
In terms of the out-of-the-box settings (outside of Gnome Tweaks), the only thing I’ve really changed is turned “Locate Pointer,” “Large Text,” “Always Show Accessibility Menu” to “on.” IDK - I don’t think that has anything to do with it - the three (3) things that I’ve had trouble with from day one (1) setting up community VPN, setting up more than one (1) monitor and then the snapping to the edge of the screen is just so annoying. I have installed Gnome Tweaks actually and ticked off the option for this behavior to occur, and it still persists. Any help is appreciated.
