Hi there, welcome!
Please always provide garuda-inxi instead of inxi -Faz (or other options), since it provides additional information.
Could you please better describe the sequence of actions that leads to the disappearence of the buttons?
Are you using normal or maximized windows?
If Firedragon is maximized (i.e. the buttons are in the top panel, in the standard latte config), if you switch to another, non-maximized, window, they disappear in the background Firedragon window, but if you switch back to Firedragon they should appear again.
With normal windows (i.e. buttons on the window), they should be greyed out instead of disappearing.


Wait a moment, why this?

Did you happen to go to the wrong forum?


I know Firedragon support is apart of Garuda so I assume this would be the best place for support, Honestly if I could find it I probably would have made an issue on a Git repo.

Sure, we support it, but normally for Garuda users.
The gitlab is here:

I leave it to @dr460nf1r3, the creator and maintainer, to decide wheather it is necessary to open an issue there or this is something that could be easily followed up here.


Thank you!

Any type of window with title bar off. Tabbing off just gets rid of the buttons.
