I originally sent this post on 9/6/09, at 8:22 AM, and as far as I know, it
has never shown up on this support list, so I'm sending it again.
Apologies if I'm the only one that didn't get a copy, and you've all seen it.
I'll risk that this one time...
Thanks, keith whaley
A while back, I started a small discussion here about an oddity I was
experiencing with my Finder's desktop.
To begin with, I use the Snow Leopard OS, v. 10.6.1.
My mail/news client is Mozilla SeaMonkey 1.1.18.
My problem is, _sometimes_ when I have some window on top, mostly filling the
screen, and I try to move it aside a little, by click-and-drag on the window's
uppermost bar, to see what's underneath, and release the mouse cursor after
moving the top window aside, that window snaps back to where it was originally.
In other words, I cannot move the window and expect it to STAY where I put it!
Yes, I know I can press my mouse's scroll ball, to reveal what windows I have
open, but in this instance, I wanted to view the window full size. Pressing
the mouse button reduces the size of all windows, to be able to display all of
them. I didn't want that.
To briefly recap, the last time this happened someone on this list suggested I
go to the SM menu bar item Window/Zoom. That does indeed jostle the top
window, and when I first tried that technique, it freed the window's rubbery
attachment to the screen, and I thought I had that problem solved for all time.
That just happened again, so I tried Zoom. It jostled the window, but the
'rubber band' effect keeps pulling that window to it's original position on
the screen. So, that's not a solution to the problem...
I can't tell you WHAT window I had up, nor what led up to my wanting to take a
look at the other windows, but I sure would like to know what's going on!
BTW, I was in the mail/newsgroups side of SeaMonkey when this happened, not in
This snapping back to a previous position is a big annoyance to me, and I'd
like to know how to get out of it when it happens.
