How to solve this issue? My Machine is running Ubuntu Gnome 16.04.

I tried disabling Gnome extensions related to activities but everything is still the same.


Not a complete solution but i had the same problem when the "Native window placement" extension was activated, try disabling it by opening the tweak tool and going to the extensions window to locate the Native window placement extension, disable it and reboot your computer just to make sure.

    Otherwise I think this looks like a solution. Likely even the solution. If you make the change and notify me I'll vote for your answer. :-] – David Foerster Jun 27 '17 at 22:55

    Thanks @berith that did it. I just went into Gnome's "Tweak Tool" and disabled the Native window placement extension. – noureldin275 Jun 28 '17 at 8:01
