Depends what you mean by remember.

If you mean if it can save your session and restore it, it does remember the
various states of all your programs.

If you mean can you have a specific window always start with some state, no.
That's left up to the applications to provide.

You would use the action where you read your Openbox config file and/or run
your webbrowser and read the documentation on the Openbox config file.
