I will try to simplify the explanation. See [1] for more information
on browser fingerprinting. Test with Tor Browser resized to different
window sizes. See the result for 'Bildschirmgröße und Farbtiefe'
(Screen Size and Color Depth) changes by the current window size. Now
try the same test without Tor Browser.

>Does that mean if I make the window full screen I'm losing anonymity?

Yes. Imagine if you use a VM with a fixed desktop resolution smaller
than your host desktop.

That your window starts full screen then resizes is good. That you
then maximize is bad. Is that better?

my english is not good enough anymore to understand number (7), and I 
simpy do not understand why the Tor browser opens with the last used 
window size and changes to default after one second.
