Buttons reorganizing

I tend to leave a lot of open applications on my second monitor and it feels like all the time my browser, Chrome, is moving from the far left and being pushed to the right. I notice this most when I leave it on Facebook, as if the page updating itself caused it to be pushed down the task bar. Is this a bug or am I just missing a check box somewhere in the settings?

Ok to make this clear, he IS talking about the taskbar icons.

As far as I am concerned, it is in fact a bug concerning refreshing facebook, though I htink it may be more of a bug with Chrome. Can you give it a shot with Firefox?

Tried Firefox and the icons do shift over when Facebook updates.

I have been trying to reproduce this error, but I am unable to. What version of Windows are you using, and what version of DisplayFusion?

I have experienced something similar, so I'll add to this thread instead of starting my own.

I run DisplayFusion 3.1.7 on WinXP SP3.

I have noticed that my taskbar items on my primary/first monitor sometimes re-arrange themselves. That is, when I click on a taskbar item it dissappears for a moment and then re-appears as the rightmost taskbar item. This only occurs on the primary Windows taskbar. All taskbar items stay in the correct sequence on the DF taskbar on the secondary monitor.

It is not app-specific for me, as it happens regularly for taskbar items associated with instances of Firefox, Notepad, and SecureCRT.

I suspect it has something to do with the drag-and-sort functionality on the secondary monitor DisplayFusion taskbar, or even just the fact that there is a secondary DF taskbar that is sharing the taskbar items. I have the "All taskbars show the relevant windows" option checked.

I even tried installing xNeat Windows Manager and Taskbar Shuffle (not at the same time) to see if they would help me keep the taskbar items on the primary Windows taskbar sorted as I would like, but the problem still persists.

Let me make sure I get this right: this only happens on the main Windows taskbar, correct? I was testing with the DF taskbar, I'll revise my test strategy. It's possible that DF is taking the items away, then re-adding them quickly causing them to be shuffled. Which taskbar mode are you using? Can you post a screenshot of your settings for me to copy? Thanks!

I have the opposite problem as Sulfix, as I am only experiencing it on the Windows taskbar.

Screenshot of my DisplayFusion Taskbar settings:

I also made a Flash video using Wink to show what happens when I click on the taskbar items (and how they move to the right end):

My setup is:

Monitor 1 = Windows Taskbar
Monitor 2 = DisplayFusion Taskbar and set as Primary Display in Windows Display Properties

I did some testing, and if I switch my Primary Display to be Monitor 1 then the Windows Taskbar items don't rearrange themselves. It seems to happen only if I have the Primary Display set to the monitor with the DisplayFusion taskbar.

@Bloodwine: Can you post the information from your Troubleshooting tab in the DF Settings window? I'd like to re-create your monitor setup on my test machine. Thanks!

@Bloodwine: I can't seem to reproduce these issues, no matter what I do. :( Can you do me a favour and enable the "Debug Logging" option on the Troubleshooting tab. Let it run for a few hours, and as soon as you see the issue send me the complete debug log file. You can use the "Open Log Location" button find the log. You can attach it here, or you can email me directly: jtackabury@binaryfortress.com.

Thanks!
