Unable to Alt+Tab when a window is maximized


Description ben_c_james 2015-01-13 23:08:30 CET

When a window is maximized, Alt+Tab does not switch context to the selected window.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Open a few windows (Firefox and Midori in my case).

2) Press F11 to full-screen one.

3) Press Alt+Tab to cycle to the next window - the window switcher will pop up, however releasing Alt does not cause the view to change.

Which version do you run (xfwm4 --version)?

I believe this is fixed, I can't reproduce with current git version.

That's an old development version, this bug has been fixed since then.
