AFAIK their is no fix for IE. It, for reasons unknown decides how it opens.

Their is one method now that I remember. Click the middle button (the one next to the x used to close it ) it should show only a single square. Image below. Use the cursor to grab any side & top or bottom (twin arrows will show) then drag it to full screen. Hold Ctrl button and click x to close IE.
