From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020722 BuildID: 2002072204 All browser windows--including "find" dialogs, the download manager, "URL not found" dialogs, etc.--use the same X-windows class and instance. 'xprop' always reports: WM_CLASS(STRING) = "mozilla-bin", "Mozilla-bin" Ideally, different types of windows should have different instances. That would enable various window managers (e.g. ion) to give special treatment to specific Mozilla windows. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Just run 'xprop' on any Mozilla window. Actual Results: 'xprop' always reports: WM_CLASS(STRING) = "mozilla-bin", "Mozilla-bin" Expected Results: Just as an example, a "find" dialog might report something like: WM_CLASS(STRING) = "mozilla_find", "Mozilla-bin" Mozilla is not very friendly to the Ion window manager <http://modeemi.cs.tut.fi/~tuomov/ion/> at the moment. Ion provides several modes for handling transient windows. If different modes were used for different Mozilla windows, the problem would go away; that is only possible if different types of Mozilla windows are given unique X instance identifiers.
