Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 207790
Wobble Firefox Too High and Lose Minimize, Maximize and Title Bar Control
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
If you start wobbling Firefox or any program a little you can accidentally sling
the Title bar of the program in question onto the top bar where applets should
be. If you wobble it even more you can actually lose the entire title bar as it
goes beyond the top bar. So now you can't use the functionality of the top part
of your program.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Compiz, latest as of september 23rd 2006
Always. Just wobble.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wobble a program, for example Firefox.
2. Wobble it straight towards the top of the screen.
3. Watch it lunge onto the top bar or even farther up into the "not visible"
part of the monitor.
4. Now you've got a program that you can't move because the title bar is
invisible. And you can't minimize or maximize it. And you can barely access
the menu items such as [File] [Edit] [View] [Go] [Bookmarks] etc...
Wobble can hide parts of a program if wobbled offscreen.
Wobbling should be safe and not cause you to lose a program's top half.
Although you have to be a wild wobbler for things to go really wrong.
ATI Radeon 9200 with 128 MB of ram. FC6T3 up to date as of sept 23 2006.
I got a bugreport about yumex starting with the window decoration hidden behind
the top panel when using Compiz.
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
Even after almost three months there has been no activity on these bugs, so we
consider them obsolete and they are being closed as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
Please, if you are able to reproduce this bug on currently supported (FC6 and
F7) non-test distribution, or if there is any other reason why this bug should
be kept alive, please, reopen, change the product to something more recent and
add an additional information to the comment of such bug.
Thank you very much.
