Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 425850
odd behavior in the "normal-size" and maximize functions of Firefox Fedora/220.127.116.11-3.fc8
Last modified: 2008-01-10 07:28:23 EST
Description of problem:
With either Firefox or Thunderbird the "normal-size" and maximize functions seem
to "forget" the last known state(window size) when closed at full screen mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Firefox Fedora/18.104.22.168-3.fc8 and Thunderbird 22.214.171.124.
Very if the following the instructions are adhered to.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Open Firefox or Thunderbird
- Maximize the window of either(Ff/Tb) (Full screen - Not F11).
- Either hit the Maximize button or double click the window bar, both work the
same, to ensure smaller size of window in alternate state.
- Maximize window again, using dbl click or Maximize button
- Close Firefox/Thunderbird in fully maximized state
- Re-open in same session or logoff and then re-open, results are the same
- Note that Firefox or Thunderbird are fully maximized upon launch
- try to "normal size" the window, via double click of the window bar or
- An attempt to recall the last known window size will be attempted, noted by a
quick flash of previous window size. But will FAIL, and use entire usable
desktop area. Similar to being Maximized.
- Repeated clicks of the window bar or the button result in the same action.
Resize to entire available screen area and NOT the last windows state
Return to previous window state
What window manager are you using?
Gnome - Sorry about that.
I also just confirmed it on a fresh install of F8 on another machine.
Also running Gnome
metacity or compiz? (e.g. are you running the cube with the neat effects?)
Just the default Metacity, no frills desktop.

Reporter, does this happen with other application than firefox/thunderbird?
So far I have not found any others.
Terminals, Nautilus, Gedit, Gftp, Open Office are all "OK".
Matej, can you reproduce in firefox 3?

Actually, I cannot. I have experienced this with F8, but I cannot reproduce it now.
