With firefox-3.5.2-2.fc11.i586, I use the Save Session 220.127.116.11 extension to save a session and exit. The session has multiple windows open, on multiple workspaces.
After I restart Firefox, multiple windows open and start to load tabs. When I go to a different workspace than the one where I started Firefox, I see a bold, blue entry for e.g. "Firefox (6)" in the window toolbar at the bottom of the screen. I click on it, and I see a list of the 6 separate windows. But when I select one, nothing happens. I would have expected that window to show up on the current workspace, or for the system to jump to the workspace where the new window wants to appear. I have to actually go find the workspace on which I restarted Firefox, and click on each of the windows in turn, until they are no longer bolded. Then I can move them between workspaces.
This seems to me like very much window manager issue. Which one do you use?
Thanks for filing the bug
The Gnome default, Metacity.
Probably related to bug 393481 in some way.
Does the Save Session extension attempt to:
- Remember the workspace that the window was on?
- Remember whether the window was minimized or not?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
