Hi there,

I'm happy using i3 as my wm. Lately I have set $mod+F1 to fire firefox and assign firefox to workspace 3 in my config file. It is working fine.

But once I move the firefox from workspace3 to other workspaces, let's say workspace 5, whatever pop up from firefox, the popup windows would go back to workspace 3.

I know it is not really a bug or something, just want to let you know and see what I can do to keep the popup in the same workspace.

Read the last paragraph of — you want to put firefox on workspace 3 once with your keybinding, not use a permanent assignment.
