  5. [ubuntu] Re: Sidebar Auto Hide when app pushes it not working on 12.04

    On the other hand, when you know what you're doing, there's no tool like it. In about ten minutes, I have a *very* slick, featureful, and useful desktop.

    Nothing wrong with the program. It's...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Sidebar Auto Hide when app pushes it not working on 12.04

    [ubuntu] Re: Firefox starts in fullscreen mode

    To fix this more permanently (It kept recurring, for me, even after getting firefox to the right size, then closing it so that it saves settings), I turned off Legacy Fullscreen Support in Compiz.
