Description Dan Maranville 2007-12-16 13:02:32 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/ and Thunderbird

How reproducible:
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
maximize button
- 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.
Actual results:
Resize to entire available screen area and NOT the last windows state

Expected results:
Return to previous window state

What window manager are you using?
Comment 2 Dan Maranville 2007-12-16 18:05:36 EST
Gnome - Sorry about that.
Comment 3 Dan Maranville 2007-12-16 18:07:48 EST
I also just confirmed it on a fresh install of F8 on another machine.

metacity or compiz?  (e.g. are you running the cube with the neat effects?)
Comment 5 Dan Maranville 2007-12-17 06:48:48 EST
Just the default Metacity, no frills desktop.

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

This bug is still apparent in 2.0.11
Comment 13 Matěj Cepl 2008-01-06 20:04:17 EST
Reporter, does this happen with other application than firefox/thunderbird?
Comment 14 Dan Maranville 2008-01-06 22:47:32 EST
So far I have not found any others.
Terminals, Nautilus, Gedit, Gftp, Open Office are all "OK".
Comment 15 Christopher Aillon 2008-01-09 07:30:16 EST
Matej, can you reproduce in firefox 3?

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