I just installed Fedora 19 last night, and followed with a few tweaks including gnome-classic-session. I am brand new to Fedora and there are a few things that I cannot seem to figure out how to do. I searched through the gnome extensions library and did not see anything that would help, and Google isn't helping much either unfortunately. Two of the abilities I would really like are:

1) be able to drag and rearrange the taskbar icons in the gnome-classic-session bottom panel, and

2) have the same right-click options on the taskbar icons that I have on the title bar (mostly move to another workspace and close).

I had those in Ubuntu but I can't remember what it was that allowed them to happen. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Edit: I also just discovered that the taskbar items are randomly rearranging themselves when the screen locks and I then unlock it. Stopping that from happening as well would be great.

It may have been a function of compiz, since I had that installed as well.

I have not used Gnome Classic Session, but this may be expected behavior. You will have to file enhancement requests with Gnome. https://bugzilla.gnome.org

mooninite, I am not understanding your response regarding this being an "expected behavior". Are you referring to the randomized order of the taskbar items after each screen lock? Because as to the dragging of them, I wasn't saying "I can't and I should be able to", but rather, "what tweak do I need to be able to do this". Thanks.
