Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 438693
[RHEL5 U2]Firefox does not stay on proper desktop
Last modified: 2008-05-21 10:26:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Running in gnome environment. I have several desktops. If I open firefox on
desktop 2 and then in desktop 1 I click a web url, firefox moves to desktop 1.
Prior to upgrading to RHEL5.2 Beta it would remain on desktop 2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Firefox should remain on the desktop I selected
I was told that this is a "known issue with a known patch" and
that we had included for the beta.
The version I am using is the version that should have the fix.
"The fix is basically stop building the broken stuff. We have the right
--disable flag set"
This bugzilla has Keywords: Regression.
Since no regressions are allowed between releases,
it is also being proposed as a blocker for this release.
Please resolve ASAP.

This is a duplicate of this Fedora bug:
Which is itself now forwarded to upstream Metacity:
The correct fix for this issue is not to disable startup-notification support in
firefox, but instead to pull in the relevant Metacity patch from rawhide.
