App disappears from all Dexpot desktops but process remains in Task Manager.

Postby fyiwriter » 07.11.2017 08:39:10

I have a problem that happens from once every week or two, to a few times a week. Usually no more than once per day but occasionally twice, and rarely more than twice in a day.

I'll have FireFox open on (for example) desktop 5, and I'll switch to desktop 1 for a while. When I come back to desktop 5, FireFox window is no longer there (not as Minimized or Restored or Maximized).

But if I open Windows Task Manager, I can see the FireFox process running.

I am not able (I don't know how) to reactivate FireFox...
From Task Manager, I can't do FIreFox -> "Switch To" because FireFox is no longer showing up on the Applications page, so I can't select FireFox and click "Switch To".

If I do "Alt -> Tab" to cycle through running apps, "FireFox" is not among the apps shown.

It doesn't seem to matter how long I am on desktop 1. It could be a few minutes, to a few hours before switching back to desktop 5.

The only choice I can see is to "Kill" the FireFox process and restart FireFox. If I had a page opened where I was typing/filling in a form, that will all be lost.

I have no way to know if Dexpot is related tho the disappearing FireFox, but it seems possible. I would be glad to run any tests and report back.
