Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

I'm running Debian Sarge with the most recent updates, but with a mozilla.org
downloaded Firefox.

The window manager is FVWM 2.

Firefox had been running for approximately 6 days when the problem occurred.

I went to full screen by accidentally hitting F11, and thought I'd restore to
normal size by hitting F11 again.

Hitting F11 again removed the Firefox window, but left the process running.

That is, Firefox does not appear in the window list of the window manager, and
is as such impossible to restore.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start firefox, with the profile manager or e.g. -P default
2. Press F11
3. If the window doesn't completely disappear immediately, press F11 again.

Actual Results:  
The firefox window disappeared completely after pressing F11 the first time.

Expected Results:  
The firefox window should have filled the screen in presentation mode.

tarball of tarballs of /proc/PID for firefox processes

I don't know how helpful the contents of /proc are, but here you go. :)

I observe the same behavior, under FVWM 2.5.10 (x.org 6.7.0, Mandrake 10.1). It
has also been reported to fvwm, see
http://www.fvwm.org/cgi-bin/fvwm-bug/incoming?id=1440
No idea whether this is a firefox or an FVWM problem.

I cannot confirm this bug for Firefox 1.5 Beta 1, it seems to work correctly now.

Resolving as WFM based on comment 3. Jan, if you see this again with Firefox 2.0.0.3 and a clean profile, please reopen this bug.
