Summary0003945: UI: Can't move Preferences window under POP!_OS 19.04 (Ubuntu 19.04 based)
DescriptionThe preferences window can't be moved/dragged anywhere. It's the main FreeCAD window that is moving instead.
Steps To ReproduceI have a laptop with an external monitor. The external monitor is my main monitor with desktop icons. I start FreeCAD 0.18.1 (from stable ppa) and it spawns on my main monitor. When I click Edit->Preferences, the Preferences window often spawns on my laptop monitor and can't be dragged anywhere. Trying to drag it strangely drags the main FreeCAD window which isn't even under the mouse pointer.
