Bug Description

When using side-bar applications, that you usually access by moving the mouse cursor to the left-end of the screen and clicking the left button, this doesn't have effect, because in the left-end of a maximized window, the cursor turns into "resize mode" (precisely left-resize mode), and click has no effect.

In an standard way, when a window is maximized, you cannot resize it, so it has no sense to switch cursor to resize-mode, because no resizing is possible and, doing this, left-side toolbars usually become useless, because it's difficult to open them (you have to go to the left, and then go to the right one or two pixels to get rid of the resizing icon on the cursor, and then click)

Hi,

I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron). For trigger the bug, for example, use
Firefox and install the extension called "All in one Sidebar". When
installed, open Firefox and maximize it, a small (a milimeter or so) bar
appears on the left side of the browser, you can open/close the "All in one
Sidebar" by clicking on the small bar but, when you position your cursor on
the left side of the screen (in order to click on the small bar), the cursor
turns into the resize window mode (athough it's maximized) so, you cannot
click on it. To open the bar, you must go to the left, and then go one or
two "pixels" to the right, in order to make the resize icon dissapear.

This is just a way of seeing how it makes some extensions unavaliable, the
real bug, in my oppinion, is to show up resizing mouse options on the mouse
when aproaching to a maximized window border.

I hope it helps, if you need further information, please contact me anytime.

Regards!
