Using Fedora 22 with GNOME
However, similar problem has persisted in previous Fedora versions, but sometimes not as noticeable.

Using a dual monitor setup but happens on one screen also.

Currently the focus in in my firefox window, however, I'm unable to activate the hot corner to bring forth the window selection screen.  I'm also unable to activate the other firefox window on the secondary monitor.

It is not limited to firefox but other windows as well.

To exit this "stuck" mode, I need to right click the current focused window to bring up the right click menu, left click out of it, and then switch windows.

In addition, if I fullscreen firefox flash on secondary monitor, the only actions are left click on the flash window to toggle play/pause and right click to bring up the flash right click menu.  Clicking anywhere on primary monitor does not do anything and cannot activate hot corner.  Not sure if this is completely related, but it seems to be.

alt-tab allows switching windows and change keyboard focus but not mouse focus (still stuck on before switching window)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have a window in focus
2.Move to hot corner (or try to focus on other windows)
3.No results until right click on window in focus

Actual Results:  
No window selection screen or no changing window focus

Expected Results:  
window selection screen or changed window focus

Please let me know if there are any logs I can help with.

Something like this also happens in a window that I start from terminal and try to click.
