It is a constant annoyance that I can't tell which windows are minimized by looking at the Window menu. Other browsers, like Safari, put a "diamond" mark before the names of minimized windows.
This seems like a low-effort, low-risk enhancement, and I can't think of any downside to it. I've been begging for it for years. What's the problem?
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
Personally, I think the problem might be no one actually thinks they can use this information. I have been around computers now for some 30 years, having upgraded to dos 3 and in that time moved from a single application at a time to multi process windows.
I have no interest in knowing of a window is minimised. I want to know if the program is running, if my system is on, I want to know at a glance that say the mail program is active. But the state of the window minimised or not has no value, I either want to access say the browser, or not. If it is minimised really does not add anything for me, and I would guess lots of other folk. I will switch to the application and expect the operating system to restore the window when I select it, minimised or not.
