It seems to be a bit random, sometimes I get the right workplace,
sometimes not. I'll see if it settles down.

So how does it remember (xfce or firefox) where it started last time
as whenever I restart firefox now it starts on the right workplace and
position. Thus I *can* get the result I want simply by putting
firefox back into my $HOME/Desktop/Autostart/default file.

Well somehow firefox *is* remembering the workspace it started on.
