    Maximizing windows and moving windows over trillian


    So I have whats probably a stupid question and easy fix, But i can not for the life of me figure out what I did or how to fix it.

    All of a sudden my trillian on the left side of the screen is over powering everything else. i can not drag a window over it, Nor can i maximize a window to cover over it. picture below

    So what setting can I turn back on to go back to being able to move firefox across the trillian buddy list and maximize my windows without seeing trillian in the corner holding its ground.

    Last I know of, Trillian is absolutely not compatible with Windows 8(.1) and even causes serious stability issues.

    Unless they updated the software, best to uninstall and forget (for now.)

    I had it working properly for the last few weeks then all of a sudden today i played with the show windows stacked thing on the bottom task bar and trillian went haywire after that, while everything else went back to normal.

    I just now figured it out. Apparently a setting changed itself in my Trillian settings. I turned off the feature in preferences, contact list. "dock contact list when near edge of the screen" and everything is back to normal now.
