#9124 new Bug report

FileZilla window doesn't relocate to main monitor when using RDP to dual monitor computer

Reported by: Jacques Francis Owned by:
Priority: low Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc:
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version: Windows/MacOS X

Description

If Filezilla is left running on the 2nd monitor in a dual monitor arrangement, then RDP is used to access the desktop from a remote computer which has only a single monitor, the Filezilla instance doesn't relocate itself to the 1st monitor, and is inaccessible because it's invisible. The work-around is to kill it from the task bar and restart it, and it then locates itself on monitor 1.

This is not just an RDP issue. I have the same problem in a dual monitor setup with OSX 10.9. If I unplug from the monitor with the FZ window on the external display the window never comes back up on the laptop display. The window location needs to be checked as valid on display.

How do other programs behave - I mean, do all programs have this issue? In my opinion, this is an issue the display manager should take care of.

Other programs will move to the active window when there is only one. I'm not sure what tells it to do that, but I would assume it is standard to verify that the window is in a valid location when it is restored. I work back and forth between single and dual display on the same laptop quite often and I have no other programs that I use frequently that I have seen do this.

Another issue with this on Mac OS X has been reported in #9208.
