Every time I click on the Filezilla icon in the launcher it opens maximised. Is there any way to make it behave and open as a normal window, and perhaps ideally even remember its window position?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

If you open Filezilla, restore the window to a non-maximized state, close and re-open the program it should remember the window size previously used. What version of the program are you using? This probably should be reported to the Filezilla bug tracker. –  Bruno Pereira Feb 17 '12 at 14:24
That was the first thing I tried, Bruno. Filezilla will not remember window size or position, but will always open maximised. I'll report it to the Filezilla bug tracker as you suggest. Thanks –  dunderhead Feb 18 '12 at 16:55
Update: This is not a Filezilla bug. It's a Unity launcher bug. Launching Filezilla from a terminal or from Cairo Dock works perfectly and behaves as it should. –  dunderhead Mar 12 '12 at 7:54
This question appears to be abandoned and unanswered, could you perhaps add more detail to your question? If this question no longer applies then you can either delete it or answer it yourself if you've solved the problem. Thanks! –  RolandiXor Dec 28 '12 at 23:23
Just tested this on 12.10: Filezilla behaves as it should. Closing the application maximized restores it maximized, window mode restores it as window mode, both launcher and terminal tested. This should be reported as a bug if still important. –  Bruno Pereira Dec 28 '12 at 23:26
