This question already has an answer here:

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 with a dual monitor setup.

I like Firefox to have a specific position and size on my screen. So I resize it and position it like I want it. But when I close and reopen it, it randomly resizes and positions itself as it wants.

Is there a way to make Firefox remember it's size and position? I have tried compizconfig settings manager but this changes the default behavior of all firefox windows, including pop up dialog boxes. I'm hoping there is a better method.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

This does not solve the fundamental problem, but if the position you prefer is a simple one, like maximized or one third of the screen horizontally, then QuickTile might be able to help you. Have look at it here. You will need to add /path/to/script --daemonize as a startup application.
