Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

1) Open FF3
2) Start typing a familiar URL, and get the location bar auto-suggest to show up
3) CTRL+ALT+ARROW KEY/CTRL+ALT+LEFT MOUSE CLICK to another desktop.

FF doesn't let #3 happen as normal. Any idea why, and is this a compiz or a FF bug?

Certainly not compiz, it happens with metacity too.

I can confirm this with firefox, but I question whether or not this requires fixing, as it is rare for somebody to try to need this function, and little time is needed to click outside of the drop-down box.

Note: Ctrl + Alt + Arrowkey doesn't work either.

Sorry, I meant Ctrl + Alt + Mouse click, for desktop cube.
