You can't open these flyouts from snap view because the charm options only apply to the bigger of the 2 snapped applications. But if you happen to open one of these flyouts, and then you switch to snapped view, the user may be confused. There is no back button because it is cut off. Steps to reproduce the issue: 1. Open Metro Firefox 2. Open the charms bar (Windows key + C) 3. Click on the "Settings" charm 4. Click on "Options" 5. Enter into snapped mode for Metro Firefox so it is the smaller app Actual Results: Part of the pane is displayed. Expected Results: Either the pane is automatically dismissed or it is small enough to be fully visible.
We should totally close any of our open flyouts when we go into snapped mode. I don't think this is a commonly encountered edge case and the work around (just swipe in from top or bottom of screen to dismiss or move back to full screen or fill view.) Because of that, I don't think we need this in v1.

Would this be a new story or change to an existing story?
Created attachment 724237 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v1.
Marking needs checking in case someone can land before I can. m-i tree is currently closed.
Temporarily reopening this to include in Iteration #4. It will be resolved immediately after the start of the iteration.
Tested on 2013-03-15 using Nightly built from http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/0f7261e288f2 - Tested using steps from comment #0 and now the all the flyouts you can access within the Settings/Options are auto dismissed when you go into snapped view (left or right).
