[4.0.1 Beta 2] Weird Chrome behavior is back

Hi,

I reported a weird Chrome behavior during the 4.0 beta:

http://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/4-0-beta-12-weird-behavior-with-chrome/

The problem was fixed with one of the next betas. Unfortunately with the new beta 2 of version 4.0.1 the problem is back. Using Chrome 20.0.1130.1 (current developer version) on a Windows 7 x64 SP1 machine.

If you need further information, just let me know .

Tested and confirmed! We'll see if we can get it fixed up again.

Thanks!

Just to give you a heads up. I just updated to beta 3 and the problem disappeared. I am not sure whether one of the fixes in beta 3 fixed it or the problem only occurs sporadically. I will keep a watchful eye on it though .

Indeed! I've tested and confirmed that it's fixed in Beta 3 as well. Just let me know if it comes back again in the future

Thanks!

Okay, I think I got that problem nailed down. The problem continues to appear under very specific circumstances. Essentially whenever I drag the Chrome tab on top of the other screen's Desktop, so that DisplayFusion's monitor selector pops up, dropping the frame will cause all Chrome tabs to switch monitors. If I avoid DisplayFusion's monitor selector to show up, by either dragging the Chrome tab on top of an already open application or by simply disabling the "Show monitor selector while dragging" option, only the tab I dragged is moved to the other monitor.

If my description doesn't make sense and you can't reproduce it I can record a screen capture so you can see what exactly I am talking about .

It does make sense! It looks like when tearing out the right-most tab, and attempting to drop it on an empty desktop, the monitor selector overlay shows, and then both windows move when the mouse is released. We'll have a look into it and see what we can do.

Thanks!

I actually get this issue happening without any monitor selection appearing and on desktops with programs already open.
- Launch Notepad on monitor 1 and 2
- Launch Chrome 19.0.1084.46 on monitor 1 and open several tabs
- Activate any tab except the far right
- Drag far right tab and drop it on Notepad on monitor 2
- Right tab will be open in a new window on monitor 2 (as desired), however the window of the remaining tabs will also move over to monitor 2 (undesired)

This undesired behaviour is not consistent, but happens maybe every third time.

Thanks for posting this. I thought I was going nuts (again) as it happened to me back in an earlier beta. Now the behavior is back in Beta 3.

As a work around:
Open up the settings, go to Windows Management and uncheck "Show monitor selector while dragging." - Chrome acts normal again.

This is my original discussion:

We've just released DisplayFusion 4.0.1 Beta 5 (http://www.displayfusion.com/Download/Beta/), and this issue should be all fixed up.

Thanks!
