Window position not saved correctly... (#16623)

Postby Starion » 29. Mar 2017, 19:16


[ModEdit; related ticket: #16623: Window position not saved correctly...]

Since upgrading to version 5.1.18, the VirtualBox Manager window will not save where placed by about a menu bar's height. Any place you put it on the desktop will place it approximately 20 pixels down from where you actually last left it upon relaunch of VirtualBox. Anybody else seen this?

Additional Note: Just confirmed this on a completely different OSX machine. Same problem.

OSX 10.12.4

  1. Did both OSX machines run 10.12.4?
  2. Quit VirtualBox (and make sure no Virtual*, VM*, VBox* processes are in the Activity Monitor), grab a copy of "~/Library/VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml". Run VirtualBox again and grab a fresh copy. ZIP them together and attach them to your response.
Any "other" software you might have installed? Besides the system defaults I mean...

1. Yes, all tested machines are running 10.12.4. However, the problem also existed in 10.12.3 and only started upon upgrading VirtualBox to 5.1.18.
2. Files attached.

Of course there is "other" software. Too numerous to list in detail. But considering all OSX machines I have tested on so far (5) have entirely different sets of "other" software, and one that is stock Sierra install with latest updates, it's unlikely that other software is the cause.

Actually, I went back several 5.1.x versions, and as back as 4.3.24, with several tests in between. There is a bug definitely, introduced in the 5.1.x series. Even 5.0.36 works OK (which is two weeks old), but anything 5.1.x won't.

Workaround: maximize the window's y-size, from Menu Bar to Dock.


PS. Boy, this brings back memories.. It was on my very first post in the forums that was dealing with a related bug: VM window position moves by 22 pixels (LastWindowPostion)

So are you going to generate a bug report or should I?
