Bug Description

Using keyboard shortcut to run Firefox (default super key+2) which is set to come in maximize mode I've noticed that launcher is there and won't hide unless I hover my mouse pointer over Firefox global menu. It happens only with Firefox and only when keyboard shortcut is used to run it. If I minimize it to the launcher (for instance by hitting alt+F9) and bring it back again using the same shortcut the launcher works correcly (auto-hide).

Thanks for reporting this bug and help in improving Ubuntu.

It works for me, but in order to diagnose your problem further you should provide more information by following the reporting bugs procecures,

How to recreate:
- start a new session
- hit super key+2 to launch Firefox (Firefox must be the first and only app that runs on the computer for if u run, for instance, Evolution already this problem won't happen)
- see if launcher will auto-hide automatically
That's all I can say, actually. 11.04 was unusable on my computer (a total freeze of the system once a day or so) so I can't provide any more details. I've noticed, though, that it wasn't every time situation at the end of my tests. At the beginning it was like every single time, but later it was more like random behaviour. Sometimes it was ok, other times it wasn't.

I cannot reproduce it, in my case the launcher hides normally. If you want to provide more information with ALT-F2 you can enter "apport 786473".
