Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 491413
Left-click on window border acts like a right-click
Last modified: 2014-06-18 05:11:02 EDT
Description of problem:
When the title bar of a window is hidden off the top of the screen, then it's hard to resize the window, because all clicks on the border act like right-clicks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(BTW, I'm only guessing that this is a metacity problem, because it's not unique to any particular application AFAICS)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ALT-click-drag any window and move it up until the title bar is hidden.
2. Left-click on the left/right/bottom window border.
The right-click context menu appears upon the left-click. A real right-click still brings up the context menu as well.
The border should start resizing when dragging.
Selecting resize from the context menu still works, so it is still possible to resize the window, just more cumbersome.
I've run into this on my netbook with a low resolution, where I sometimes have to ALT-drag windows around to see all their content.
I basically agree with you, but you'll need to convince the metacity maintainer upstream about this; this is not something we'd change in Fedora.
