4.0.0 (Beta 12) :: taskbar middle-click closes window

Since upgrading to Beta 12, I have noticed several occasions of the following:

When I middle-click on an application button (which should normally open a new window), instead I find that the existing window closes unexpectedly.

This appears to happen only on my secondary monitor, and only to Google Chrome (currently using version 18.0.1025.162). I confirmed that my config is set to have a middle-click open a new instance.

I apologize if this is a duplicate ticket. I tried reading the other forum posts, but none of them looked like they were the exact same issue.

Strange! I can't seem to reproduce this issue. Are you running Windows 7?

Yes, running a fully-patched version of Win7, with NVIDIA graphics driver v296.10

It's possible that this is a fluke, and that the problem specific to me. I am reporting it now because I waited too long the last time I had an issue.

Thanks! I tested in a fully patched version of Windows 7 as well. Does restarting DisplayFusion or the computer make a difference at all?

If not, could you try rolling back to Beta 11 to see if the issue goes away again? You can download it here: http://www.binaryfortress.com/Files/DisplayFusionSetup-4.0.0-Beta11.exe

Thanks!

I will try rolling back and rebooting. Unfortunately the problem is intermittent (not every middle-click closed the window) so it could take a few days of testing before I give a verdict.

No worries, just keep me posted on how it goes.

Thanks!

Upgraded to Beta 14 from last release to get the Beta 11 feature of merging pinned shortcuts. Works great except I'm having the same intermittent issue as Keith -- middle clicking on an application sometimes will close the application (with a 'safe' close with confirmation from some applications, as if I closed it from the window). I have not yet gotten it to open a new window. Reproducing the issue is difficult, but it seems to come and go in waves?

Strange! Just to double-check, is the Taskbar Button Middle-Click option on the DisplayFusion Settings > Taskbar tab set to Open a new instance?

Thanks!

In fact it was not! I had no idea that this option was there. Perhaps it should default to the Windows default action of opening a new instance? Just to clear things up, the close window action (what middle click was actually set to) did become consistent after a reboot after installing the beta, where before the restart, it was very inconsistent.

Thanks for the help!

Glad to hear it's working now, and thank you for the feedback! We'll look into it further to see if we should make it the default behaviour

Thanks!

Just a quick follow-up, which version of Windows are you on? I've just tested DisplayFusion on a fresh installation of Windows 7 and Windows 8, and both default to middle-click opens a new instance.
