 I can reproduce this bug in Tor Browser 5.0.4, Fedora 23, Cinnamon

 arthuredelstein is correct, about:tor is the only homepage that allows the
 Tor Browser to maximize. Any other homepage, including the error page when
 the browser is unable to recover tabs, prevents it from maximizing.

 The workaround is to go into about:config and set
 extensions.torbutton.startup_resize_period to false, but that's probably
 not persistent.
