Description Sam Steingold 2003-01-15 16:00:30 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021218 Description of problem: I have several workspaces and the only mozilla window is open (not iconified!) in workspace 2, and an xterm in workspace 1. I type in the xterm: $ mozilla -remote 'openUrl(http://www.gnu.org,new-tab)' I expect the GNU page to be opened in the (only) mozilla window which should stay in workspace 2 (this is what happened in mozilla 1 and in mozilla 1.2.1 as distributed by mozilla.org). Instead, in mozilla 1.2.1 as distributed with phoebe, the mozilla window appears in the workspace 1, obscuring my xterm. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.2.1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. mozilla in workspace 2 2. xterm in workspace 1 3. in xterm: $ mozilla -remote 'openUrl(http://www.gnu.org,new-tab)' Actual Results: mozilla window appears in the workspace 1 (one - where the xterm is) Expected Results: mozilla window stays in the workspace 2 (two - where it always was) Additional info: this worked as espected with moz 1 (rh8) and moz 1.2.1 as distributed by mozilla.org, but breaks with moz 1.2.1 as distributed with phoebe.

This is using gtk 1.2 so I don't know why it would be switching desktops. It does try to raise itself (as it should) but it certainly shouldn't be switching desktops.
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-15 17:54:16 UTC
Can you confirm that you're using or not using metacity window manager?
Comment 3 Sam Steingold 2003-01-15 18:05:05 UTC
I am using whatever came with phoebe by default - yes, it is metacity.
Comment 4 Sam Steingold 2003-01-21 23:36:45 UTC
this is __NOT__ mozilla-specific! I just got the same symptom with emacs, so I changed the summary.
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-21 23:48:35 UTC
I fixed this in metacity CVS, we'll get the fix next time we upgrade version.
Comment 6 Christopher Blizzard 2003-10-24 14:32:43 UTC
I'm going to assume that this was picked up, since this was fixed in cvs a long time ago.
