i **think** its because the default implementation of live does not have a window-manager. something like ice or matchbox (as mentioned in that article) manages your windows... xbmc-live is designed to run 1 app therefore it doesnt need one (and has controls built in). the fox depends on a window manager to control its size, (on the other hand, most emu's also have rez controls).
installing a WM should let you manage it & 'maximize' / 'minimize'... but it may be easier to just install ubuntu desktop & run xbmc as an app
Thanks for your valuable suggestions! I managed to install "metacity" and start firefox using a script.
killall -9 metacity
Which is at least maximizing the Firefox window, but... yeah... same as above. Also tried to use "devilspie" to get my Firefox being resized when started, which did noting at all:
;Placed under "~./.devilspie/firefox.ds"
(matches (application-name) "^firefox-bin$")
(matches (window-name) "^.*-.Mozilla.Firefox$")
Steady, but slowly I'm drifting torwards a full blown GNOME install. I would hate me for that since I really (!!!) like the short bootup time and sleek construction of the "Live" system.
