Google Chrome - moving between monitors

This has been happening for a while now -- just getting around to reporting and wondering if anyone else is experiencing...

When I move a maximized Google Chrome window to another monitor the current tab becomes blank until I minimize and re-maximize the window. I'm using DisplayFusion Pro v3.1.2 and the latest dev version of Chrome -- v4.0.206.1. I've tried this on Windows XP Pro SP3 and Windows 7 RC and RTM. There does appear to be a bug in Chrome where manually expanding it's window to fill the screen and then restoring or maximizing causes window corruption until it's been minimized/maximized. I'm thinking maybe this plays into how DF moves the window to the next screen -- does it "restore" then "maximize" on the next monitor? I'm going to search and report this bug to the Chrome devs, but is there anything that can be done from the DF end? I installed a trial of the latest Ultramon and it doesn't have this issue -- I'm guessing their window moving technique is different.

Btw, thanks for a great app!

After testing with the dev build of Chrome 4 I can safely say there are definitely some issue with both Chrome and DisplayFusion. I have managed to fix DisplayFusion so that the blank tab issue doesn't happen anymore, but Chrome still has a few issues. For instance, try clicking the maximize/restore button while Chrome is on a monitor with the DF taskbar. The restore icon doesn't change. :( That's a Chrome issue though, and your blank tab issue has been fixed for DisplayFusion 3.1.3. Thanks!

Awesome! Thank you so much for the quick response Jon. I did submit as a Chrome bug so hopefully they'll be looking into that side soon too :-)
