Re: problems using fixed window sizes

Forgive the rant that follows...

This isn't F12 specific.  As a matter of fact, I was just trying to do some
'packaging' development and SELinux on F11 when it bit me.  F12 and
its apps have the same issues, and its not even Fedora specific.
Now don't ask why I was doing it, its not relevant, but...

While doing my work, I'm using a virtual machine, (VirtualBox right now)
and it presents a nice window for Fedora to present itself into.
The trouble is that VirtualBox's display is not a very high resolution window.

Have you tried connecting via vnc?

I suppose while I'm ranting... lets delve into "WHY is everyone defining
their dialog boxes and other windows as 'modal windows?" Rarely if
ever, does a window really need to be modal!  I can't tell you how many
times I've encountered a window where I need to go to another window

It's especially good fun for the user when there are two modal dialogues, and the one that's hidden has keyboard focus. It's very hard to click its button with the mouse.

to determine the answer.  But the damn modal window prevents me from
doing it.  You have to back out of what your doing... find the answer...
then go forwards again, to get to the point of answering the original question.

I had this problem a few minutes ago, on CentOS 5.3. I was just discovering konqueror's website debugging tools.
