Alerts disappear behind the main windows

Postby marlar on Thu Feb 24, 2011 4:25 pm


There is something very annoying with LMDE which affects usability:

Program alerts (message boxes) are not modal and disappear behind their parent window if they leave focus. Then it is completely impossible to get them back unless you minimize all other windows, including the alert's parent window.

Is there any fix for this?
