    10.04 - Firefox and Evolution Broken

    Upgraded from Karmic to Lucid today (called myself giving someone else an opportunity to find the bugs). anyway...


    • Firefox 3.63 opens pinned to the upper left of the screen in restored configuration.
    • The window will not maximize.
    • There is no title bar.
    • There is no close/maximize/minimize button bar.

    Additionally


    • Evolution window can be moved, but will not resize/maximize.
    • There is no title bar/close/maximize/minimize buttons on Evolution


    This will not do.

    Any ideas?

    Disable the desktop effects and see what happens.

    found the setting for desktop effects and...it was never enabled, so...i guess it's disabled.

    Create a new user account and see if it has the same problems.

    Upgrading is always problematic as old configuration settings are not necessarily compatible with the new versions.
