[Bug 919437] [NEW] Lost window, cannot get it back.


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I have a Chrome window that I was moving around via ALT+drag and the
window "snapped" offscreen in the direction where there is no virtual
workspace. I cannot get the window back into a workspace.

Things I can do: I can see it in the spread or by double clicking on the
app icon in the launcher, but when I click on the window to select it,
it just brings me to the workspace it thinks it is in,but it is still

At this point, I can't get the window back on screen.
