Description Hans de Goede 2019-05-14 12:27:59 UTC
When video-chatting with firefox-wayland using bluejeans, the small status window with the globe + cam + mic icons is shown as a normal window with standard window decorations and placed somewhere on the desktop.

With firefox-x11 instead it is a borderless window which is drawn centered at the top of the primary monitor. I would expect the same behavior when running firefox-wayland.

I can see this too. It's been the same way for a while. Nightly 68.0a1 (2019-05-06) (64-bit).

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2019-07-11 13:18:31 UTC
FWIW this is still happening with the official firefox 68 release. I think it might be best to just disable the whole mini status window thingie when using Wayland, IMHO it does not add much anyways.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 31 development cycle.
Changing version to '31'.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 31 development cycle.
Changing version to 31.

Comment 5 Jean-Pierre Rupp 2020-06-08 10:36:18 UTC
This bug is still present in Fedora 32 as of today. Keep it alive.

Comment 6 Ben Cotton 2020-11-03 15:14:05 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 31 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 31 on 2020-11-24.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
Fedora 'version' of '31'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 31 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 7 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2020-11-03 16:44:06 UTC
Still present with firefox-82.0-5.fc33.x86_64.
