Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 457640
Windows placed outside screen
Last modified: 2008-12-16 23:39:43 EST
Description of problem:
On some web sites, windows opened by Firefox end up outside the screen when
compiz is used with place plugin with cascade or smart placement.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always on 1280 x 800 resolution notebook. Never on 1650 x 1080 resolution notebook.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://www.realestate.com.au/
2. Pick Rent, enter any suburb into the search.
3. Click on the first property in the list and then on one of the images.
4. This will open a Firefox window position mostly outside the screen (only the
bottom edge of the window will be visible).
Opens window outside screen area.
Should open window inside screen area.
I didn't notice this before, but window that opens is just a few pixels too tall to fit onto the desktop. Instead of being centred or something, it gets pushed too high.
I see 0.7.8 was built for F-11. Any chance we can have this as an update for F-10 at least? The commit I pointed to in comment #2 is included in that release...
Still present in F-10. I'm not going to rebase to rawhide at this point, as it may actually be fixed on 0.7.8. Any chance we get that into F-10 testing?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This has been fixed in 0.7.8-4.fc10.
