When I open a new tab in chromium it switches to another open window in the same workspace only!.

And it happens using (CTRL+T), the plus icon, or any other opened tab.

What I've done recently:

  • I've edited chromium.deskop in ~/.local/share/applications , to make a static quick-lists.

  • I've added the daily PPA for Chromium (maybe because it is in development ?) .

  • Chromium version: Chromium 14.0.808.0 Ubuntu 11.04.

  • I've fully removed Chromium and installed it again, but it didn't work.

  • I didn't touch ccsm, only the Unity Plugin.

How can I fix it?

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Léo Lam Oct 24 '14 at 10:11

For me, this was fixed in the daily build a few days ago.
