Why Steam's windows can't be dragged using border and it's custom titlebar. Chromium works (almost) well with AwesomeWM, why Steam doesn't.

What UI library does steam use? Do other applications using the same UI library behave differently? – scai Jan 2 '13 at 15:39
Screenshot? Including a normal window and a steam window? – jippie Jan 2 '13 at 20:48

If title bar and borders are custom, then that is the reason why you cannot drag them. Sounds like the window manager is not involved.
