Windows 7: How do I arrange for my web pages to open full screen?

How do I arrange for my web pages to open full screen?

When I open a web page for the first time it is always minimised..I reset it (zoom) to suit my needs and whenever I return to that page it is maximised..fine.
The thing is , I'm 71 and my eyes are not as good as they used to be. I find continually having to resize pages a bit of a drag. Is there a way of setting my PC/browser..(Firefox) to ensure web pages open at their maximum every time?
Thanks in advance.

Open your browser and resize to your liking; right click the upper most portion of the window and select the "size" option from the drowndown menu. See attachment;

Can't see "size" in my version (14.0.1) of Firefox. Exactly what do you mean by "upper most portion"?

Probably an oversight, the attached pdf is a screengrab of IE.

Lets get back to the original problem.

Lets try the old fashioned method. Open Firefox then drag the bottom right corner and if necessary drag the whole window to fill the screen completely. Then close the browser by clicking the "X" at top right. Open the browser again and it should open full screen!
