View Full Version : [all variants] Anoying bug in firefox...

August 22nd, 2010, 10:36 PM
Right, say I have a firefox window open and I leave the computer for a while and it goes to screensaver,
I come back type in the password and everything then go back to what I was doing,

When I type into the address bar no 'suggested sites' appear. Its not big or anything, just really annoying, because the only way I've found to solve it is by saving the session and reloading firefox.
Any way to stop this?

wish i knew a way of stopping it from happening...but i don't.

a few workarounds though....

-minimize the firefox window, then maximize it again.


-press the alt-tab keys twice.

iirc it's a compiz bug. After going out of screensaver it erroneously draws firefox suggestions behind the firefox window, thus making it invisible for the user. Workarounds fooman mentioned work or you can disable compiz.
