Forums -> UltraMon™ -> Firefox browser buttons

In Firefox the Maximize to desktop and move window buttons are on top of the default Maximize/Minimize and Close buttons. This is just in Firefox. Chrome and Edge are fine. I mostly use Firefox so this is very annoying.

To fix this, go to UltraMon Options > Compatibility, then configure settings for the affected application and set the custom button spacing option. I would start with 50 pixels and adjust if necessary.

This option was added in UltraMon 3.3.0, if you're using an earlier version you would need to move the buttons to the left for all applications, you can do this under UltraMon Options > Buttons and Menu Commands.

I just noticed this, and I recently updated to 3.4.0, so I believe this is a new behavior. I haven't had a chance to downgrade to 3.3.0 to test. Firefox is the only program that does this.

Clicking the maximize/window button for the Firefox window fixes it until you run Firefox again. This behavior doesn't seem fully compatible with the custom button spacing option.

Which version of Firefox and Windows are you using? With Firefox 62.0.2 on Windows 10 I need to set the custom button spacing option, otherwise the UltraMon buttons are always on top of the regular buttons, maximizing Firefox doesn't fix the issue.

Windows 7 x64, Firefox x64 62.0.2

I've been able to reproduce the issue on Windows 7, as soon as you move/resize the Firefox window the buttons get positioned correctly (without requiring custom button spacing).

I'll look into this for the next release. You could use custom button spacing as a workaround, but when you move/resize Firefox the buttons will then be too far to the left.

I have a new Win 10 64bit PC, and there are no UltraMon buttons on Firefox v64 or Chrome v71.0.3578. I do have buttons on IE 11, but I rarely use IE.

Is there a fix for this?

Which version of UltraMon are you using, and are you using a custom theme for Firefox or Chrome?

For me this works fine with UltraMon 3.4.1 on Windows 10 version 1809 with the same version of Firefox and Chrome you're using (both with the default theme).

This is still an issue I take it? Every program respects the custom spacing except Firefox. If I minimize/maximize it corrects itself. So annoying, though!

John, this is still an issue on Windows 7 with Firefox 77.0.1, but works fine on Windows 10.
