It gets worse if you minimize the window, 'cause there's no way to bring it back.

BTW, it's not 100% reproducible, but a lot of people I heard complain.

Status changed to 'Confirmed' because the bug affects multiple users.

Changed in bamf (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

This still occurs in the latest version of Trusty. In order to retrieve it, you either have to minimize every other window in the same desktop, or simply quit and restart mumble.

Workaround, tested on 14.04: Meta + W to show all windows and pick the Mumble window.

I'm having that same problem with the "Updates available" window. I can only find and open it via the launcher.

This might be fixed using the patch I attached to

We had the same problem, but with the Citrix Receiver. The symptoms were exactly the same.
