How do you create a virtual desktop or a space on mac?
(In reply to Vlad [QA] from comment #1) > How do you create a virtual desktop or a space on mac? The procedure will vary depending on the OS version. For (Snow) Leopard: -Launch System Preferences -Expose and Spaces -Spaces tab -Enable spaces (set a hot key to switch between them)
Reproducible for me on Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:11.0a1) Gecko/20111204 Firefox/11.0a1 I have followed the steps from the description and indeed, a new window is opened in the same space as Firefox. I've tried to reproduce this with Google Chrome and a new window is opened in a new space. Setting resolution to NEW.
I can't seem to reproduce on Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0. Possibly resolved in OS X 10.7 Lion, or between 11.0a1 and 11.0?
Dan, are you sure? It's still reproducible on Lion here.
I think I'm sure. Here's what I'm doing: I'm on OS X 10.7.3. I have 5 virtual desktops. I'm on desktop 3. I launch Firefox via spotlight (ctrl-space, 'firef', return) Firefox opens and restores my session (2 pinned tabs, 1 normal tab, 1 window) I use two-finger scrolling to briefly look around at the opened page. I switch to Desktop 5 by using a three-finger swipe-up, then clicking on "Desktop 5" I mouse to the bottom of the screen to reveal my auto-hidden dock I right click on Firefox I left click on "New Window" A new window opens on Desktop 5, which is the correct location.
That is strange. Here, it still switches to the desktop with the existing firefox window before opening a new window.
This should probably be merged with #574229.
