[OPEN] Firefox not tiling in Awesome WM

Post by Stevo61 »

Hi all,

I'm trying to solve a recent issue where Firefox has stopped tiling. It always starts floating over other windows.
The only solution I've found is this one but the rc.lua uses different groups. I've been searching through the rc.lua (arco version provided through skel) but can't see what to change. Vivaldi was doing the same when starting through ctrl+alt+v but tiles correctly if started with another shortcut. Starting Firefox with all other shortcuts still results in a floating window.

Any suggestions on how to get Firefox to tile please?

Hello, I had the same problem. Solved it by adding the next rule in rc.lua:

Code: Select all

{ rule = { class = "firefox" },
          properties = { opacity = 1, maximized = false, floating = false } },
Took the solution from here. I'd have liked to find the root cause of the issue instead of doing this override, but I need to learn more about awesomeWM to understand it better (just started using it). If anyone finds out the reason, please let me know!
