Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz-fusion-plugins-main

Firefox 3 changed the way hints are set on popups (see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=412954). With the default Ubuntu settings, the autocomplete popups have the same animations as for new windows which can be pretty annoying.

I saw that between Compiz 0.5.2 and 0.7.2, they dropped the type=Utility from their default settings for the first open/close filter, but the Debian/Ubuntu patch was not updated for Hardy. Is this intentional?

I propose to follow Compiz change for the default Ubuntu settings, which will make Ubuntu Compiz closer to upstream and will fix the trouble with Firefox 3. See attached patch.

(I originally wrote a more detailed explanation, but the Gtk filepicker crashed on me while attaching the patch :-/ )

I can confirm that moving Utility into the Fade rules makes it look a whole lot less painful.

Also confirming, as per bug #212600. The current behavior isn't acceptable.

Agreed, this is not a good default behavior. Converted above patch into a debdiff and subscribed ubuntu-main-sponsors.
