Description FaultyG 2011-06-12 08:58:05 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.6.2) 
OS:                Linux

When switching between activities, the Google Chrome window follows to the next activity, rather than behaving like the all other applications.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure there are more than one Activity
2. Open Google Chrome
3. Switch to another Activity

Actual Results:  
Google Chrome is still visible on the next Activity.

Expected Results:  
Google Chrome shouldn't be visible.

Workaround: Turn on "use system title and borders" in Chrome(ium) settings

However, there are plenty of bugs with having chrome and multiple activities, so I suggest you leave it as it is.

This problem makes activities useless to me.

gee, if only it was an open source browser that accepted patches... :P

since this needs to be fixed in chrome, and we're not the chrome developers, I'm closing this report.

that said, there ought to be a nicer way to assign windows to activities, besides right-clicking the titlebar. has nobody even added it to the taskbar contextmenu? ideally I'd like some fun drag&drop thing, but I have no motivation to make it myself.

Although I completely understand and respect the "it's opensource so you can fix it yourself" statement, I still hate when it's used. I would if I could but I simply don't have the luxury of time to start trying to solve the inconveniences I stumble upon in open source projects.

Thank you for clarifying where the problem is.
