I make extensive use of right-clicking the window border to 'snap' it to the edge of the screen, but recently on switching to Firefox as my main browser, I noticed it simply doesn't work.

I'm also using AWM 'classic' snap, and if I drag the right edge of the FF window to the right edge of the screen, I can't them move it back again—I never get the 'resize' mouse cursor and so have to move the whole window first to make it smaller again.

Hello, David

Thank you for contacting us.

Both problems have been confirmed. We'll try to fix them and will post in this topic when they're fixed.

As for the problem with resize of Firefox by the right border: as workaround you can enable the Restrict Placement feature in AWM specific settings for Firefox (AWM configuration module > Window Settings > Specific Settings > specific settings for Firefox > Position > Restrict Placement). Leave 0 pixels everywhere except Right - specify 1 pixel for the Right limit. In this case Firefox right border won't be hidden beyond the desktop area as you snap the window.


Best regartds.

Thanks. The workaround is good, apart from the fact I have a multi-monitor setup, and so as soon as I drag the right hand side of the FF window to the right edge of monitor 2, the left-hand edge of the window jumps by one pixel onto monitor 1! And sometimes (not every time, not sure why), the window continues to grow one pixel at a time onto the left monitor 1—I guess in the process of being restricted, the window grows by a pixel before the placement restriction is enforced, and so now it has to move left to avoid shrinking.

Anyway, it will be fine until a fix is available. Thanks for the response.
