Re: [Sawfish] Strange Window Behaviour

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

I don't know if this helps... but somehow, I can't resize by any means
(except programmatically--ie. writing lisp code) my firefox window. It
always starts at the same size. always. And no matter how I try to
resize it, it refuses (using the mouse, maximize, horizontal maximize,
etc). The only way I can get it back to "normal" is by writing a lisp
function that resizes the current window to a given fixed size. 

I just can't figure out why. This started happening when I was using the
default ubuntu WM (12.10) and it continued when I moved to sawfish.
