Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The problem I'm having is that the window title bars don't seem to update when I change windows or when they should be updating. For example, selecting a window randomly won't make the X/max/min buttons change to the focused/unfocused colors. Also, operations such as changing tabs in gedit or Firefox don't change the window titles to reflect those changes. The window title bars do refresh if I do something such as resize the window or maximize and unmaximize it. Moreover, this problem does not exist when the windows are maximized (and hence the title is displayed on the global menu and not the window title bar).

Does anyone know how to fix it? Googling the problem suggests it may be a problem with the current version of Emerald or fglrx but I'm not sure how to fix either of these possible problems.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
