Re: [E-devel] Remember Window Positions applies to all child windows too

In the Remember dialog box, if you hit advanced and check the "Window
name and class" under "Remember using", the window will be remembered
by its WM_ICON_NAME.
This'll probably work in Evolution because the WM_ICON_NAME doesnt change.
However, Firefox changes its WM_ICON_NAME everytime you visit a new
website, so there's no way to get around that.

Firefox exhibits this behavior too.
