Chrome: how to fix window issues (maximize, minimize,...)

I experienced a lot of issues with google chrome that made it almost impossible to work with it. Here are some of them:

  • minimized windows stay hidden
  • maximized windows overlap system bars (like the status bar of Ubuntu Mate on the top edge of the screen)
  • windows cannot be resized

I finally discovered a setting that fixed these issues for me:

  • go to chrome://settings/appearance
  • activate Use system title bar and borders

I'm not sure if this setting was changed by me or if it was the browser default.
