Lr Prefers Its Window Zoom Setting to Mine

This is a minor annoyance, not a big problem. I size my LR window to leave some space around the edges between it and the iMac gray desktop, but whenever I hit F to see an image full screen, then hit F again to go back to Loupe view or Grid view, LR has zoomed the window to fill the screen—which I don't want. I don't recall that it worked this way previously; maybe it started after I installed the latest update.

Just to be clear: I'm not talking about zooming in and out of individual photos, I'm talking about the size of the overall Lr window.

I can return to my preferred unzoomed window size by going to the Window menu and clicking Zoom. But I don't want to have to do that all the time, and it seems like it should work the opposite way; that is, it should stick with my unzoomed view and only fill the screen when I go to Window>Zoom and click on Zoom.

I've tried resetting Lr Preferences and restarting my iMac. That didn't fix it.

Any ideas how I can make the default size be the unzoomed size, which I think is what it ought to be?

I'm seeing something possible related. If I am in develop and work with one of the TAT tools, Maybe the spot removal tool. I can set up a new target and make adjustments. If I click in the tool icon, the image zooms to some impossibly large zoom and I have to fit the image to the window again before I can proceed. Is this related to the reported bug? Or something else?
