When I minimize Firefox, WLM restores from taskbar.

    Question

  • Just installed Windows 7 RC and noticed this strange behaviour, everytime I minimize Firefox, WLM restores from taskbar.

    Note. This only happens when I have no other applications except FF on the desktop.

    If notepad, or any other application, is running on the desktop, WLM is minimized and I minimize FF, nothing happens.
    If no applicaion except FF is running on desktop, WLM is minimized and i minimize FF, WLM restores.

    Windows 7 build 7100
    Firefox version 3.5 Beta 4
    Windows Live Messenger version 2009

  • Hi, I searched the Firefox Bugzilla and actually found a bug-report and even a fix/work-around.

    https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=472874

    The solution below worked for me :)
    What about if you create (via about:config) a boolean preference called
    "config.trim_on_minimize" and set it to true, then restart Firefox; does it
    still happen?
    Cheers

  • You should ask the Firefox beta support for an upgrade to fix that bug.
