Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

I like the bottom-right-hand corner grab area for diagonal resizing, but it is not continuous the gnome corner window resize.

If you move your mouse down from the bottom scroll arrow, you hit firefox's diagonal resize area, then you hit a small dead zone between firefox's corner and the gnome corner and last at the bottom of the window you get a down-only resize option, even right up close to the corner.

This causes small fiddly movements with the mouse trying to grab the correct area. If you move the mouse around down there it frantically jumps around between the normal arrow and each resize method.

The whole bottom right corner should be one square shaped grabbable area that resizes diagonally.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Could you try to reproduce the same with Ubuntu 8.10 or 9.04? Thanks in advance.

Thank you for bringing this bug to our attention.
I'm unable to reproduce this in Karmic.

Do note another similar problem with window resizing has been reported but seems fixed in Karmic > https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/hundredpapercuts/+bug/282013

A paper cut is a minor usability annoyance that an average user would encounter on his/her first day of using a new installation of Ubuntu 9.10.

For further info about papercuts criteria , pls read > https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PaperCut

Don't worry though, This bug has been marked as "incomplete" ONLY in the papercuts project. Until someone can reproduce this behavior in Karmic
