Restore Missing Window Decoration - Compiz Replace

Every now and then the window decoration on Thunderbird, Firefox etc will disappear when I restore the window from minimized. Luckily, there is an easy workaround for this which is to run the following command:#

DISPLAY=:0 compiz --replace &

I would recommend putting this as a script in your path called compiz-replace, or set up an alias.
