Hi, Vipul.

I'm afraid I don't understand your report. Please provide a more detailed description as to what you're trying to accomplish.

Thanks for your patience.

Hulu desktop is an application, which when maximized goes to full screen. This is working correctly in unity-2d but unity prevents this application to resize and maximize.

Similar error happens for citrix receiveras reported in following bug :

Hi, is your issue exactly like the problem you described in bug 879237?

No bug 879237 has been there ever since Unity, but this Hulu plus maximizing bug is introduced in this release. I do no see a maximizing button o the Hulu App.

Okay, I think I understand your bug now. Some applications that *should* have maximize buttons *don't* have maximize buttons. Hulu is one of them.

Can you get the maximize buttons back by using Unity 2D as your session instead of 3D?
