GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 584728
Wrong Z-Order for new opened windows
Last modified: 2020-11-06 20:07:38 UTC
Please describe the problem:
Newly opened windows are opened as background windows when a "keep on top" windows is active.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open an application (window #1 ex: firefox)
2. Set Up another window with "Keep on top/foreground" option. (window #2 ex: videolan player)
3. Unfocus this window (#2)
4. focus window #1
5. Open any new application/window (#3)
Window #3 goes behind all windows (#1 & #2)
The new window #3 goes behind #2 but in front of #1
Does this happen every time?
The behaviour is correct if window #2 has the focus when #3 is opened.
bugzilla.gnome.org is being replaced by gitlab.gnome.org. We are closing all old bug reports in Bugzilla which have not seen updates for many years.
If you can still reproduce this issue in a currently supported version of GNOME (currently that would be 3.38), then please feel free to report it at https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/metacity/-/issues/
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
