I asked this on the Linux Mint forum but haven't heard back:

When I minimize a window - whether it is a file manager or whether it is an application such as firefox - the window will CLOSE instead of being minimized to the panel / system tray.

If I go to the terminal and and enter top I can see that the application is still listed (it still has a PID as well as a CPU% and a %MEM), but the window is no where to be found.

If I restart the application from the menu, it DOESN'T bring up the other window. For example: If I come to webmasterworld.com and minimize the window, then go to the Menu -> Internet -> Firefox, it will launch a new browser with the default home page (not the webmasterworld.com page I was just browsing).

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Got it figured out.

somehow, the window list gadget was removed from the bottom panel, so there was no way to view any windows that had been minimized.

If you experience this problem, then you should:

1) Right click on the Pane

2) Click the + Add To Panel link in the popup menu

3) Scroll down and click the Window List item and then click the +Add button
