Not sure if this is a "fault" or just me. The window control buttons (top left) in Firefox disappear behind the unity launch bar on the left of the screen when Firefox is maximised.

It is then impossible to resize the window as there are no controls. ALT TAB and ALT F4 provide workarounds but are hardly convenient. Is this issue "normal" or am I missing something?

This is my second day with Ubuntu / Unity. (Loving it!!!!!)

  • Try double-clicking on Firefox's title bar. – Peachy Jul 16 '12 at 11:39

It doesn't Disappears , it just Looses focus .

Like here in Top-Left Corner , when Mouse is not hovering over it

And when you browse your mouse over it , it is visible.

You just have to Double-Click on the Empty space in the Top-panel right to Firefox-title or any other Maximized window to Resize in older always.
