Thread: Firefox window disappears after clicking minimize button

    Default Firefox window disappears after clicking minimize button

    Hello I am using Opensuse 11.2 and something strange is happening with Firefox. Whenever I minimize the program it disappears and cannot be found in the task bar/widget area at the bottom of the screen. Firefox continues to run (I know this because I have played flash video and I can hear the audio) but I cannot retrieve the original Firefox window after I minimize it. Please advise.

    Is this the same for other programs? If so, it looks like you removed the task manager by accident. Right click the panel, panel settings, unlock widgets, Add widget, "Takenbeheer" (my guess from the 'nl' in the username, otherwise "Task management").
    If not, you set some values for either the task manager, or the program settings for Firefox.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    ° Perfection is not gonna happen. No way.

    Thanks a lot buddy. I too experienced the same stuff and was just wondering where these windows are disappearing. Finally your solution has helped me a lot.
