Description Nick Marsh 2003-12-01 00:57:48 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
Double-clicking the title should perform the "minimize/maximize"
behavior by default as opposed the "roll-up" behavior. Not that the
roll-up behavior is worthless, but I feel its safe to assume that the
majority of desktop users are used to what Windows and Macintosh OSs do.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open various windows.
2. Double click on the title bar.

Actual Results:  The application "rolls up".

Expected Results:  It should minimize/maximize like most operating

Changing to FC2.
Comment 2 Elijah Newren 2004-04-14 20:01:35 EDT
The default action for Metacity in Gnome _is_ toggle_maximize. 
Unfortunately, cvs.gnome.org is down so I can't find out when this
became the default.  I guess RedHat might be manually changing the
default, but they usually don't do that.  Are you sure that this is an
issue with FC2 and not just some gconf values you have hanging around?

It's fixed in current release FC2T2. Glad to see the change. Desktop Linux is in the details, 
this was one of them.
