[Bug 1067951] Re: Firefox randomly looses window decoration


I have noticed that this bug is triggered when a hyperlink from some
other program is clicked (like instant messenger, etc) and launches in
firefox. This external link loading always causes firefox to loose its
compiz window decoration.

** Description changed:

  Running Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS 64 bit in Gnome fallback with compiz. Firefox
  randomly looses window decoration (borders) and becomes unresponsive to
  keyboard input. The only remedy I have found to fix this problem is to
  run compiz --replace. Firefox is the only application to exhibit this
  behavior. I have seen this identical behavior on two different systems,
  one running 12.04.1 64 bit and one running 12.04.1 running 32 bit.
