I'm running Windows XP Pro, SP-2. My Firefox version is 2.0.0.4.

Periodically FF disappears from my Taskbar. I multi-task big-time. I have to minimize whatever task I have visible to see the Firefox window. Sometimes I have to minimize several task windows to display the FF window. This happens whether I've got multiple tabs opened in FF or not.
What's going on with Firefox?

I have never seen that happen with Windows XP, but with TweakUI, I stopped Windows from grouping buttons for the same application into one because it was driving me crazy. I would open windows for applications in a certain order and use the position on the taskbar as a guide to the one I wanted to access, and that positional information kept disappearing. Maybe that is why I have never had a problem with the Firefox button disappearing?

It happened to me a couple of times today. I was able to bring back disappeared Firefox using "Alt-Tab"

Two years later and it's still happening with 3.5.5 even when FF is the only program running.

It would be best for you to start a new thread, instead of posting to a outdated thread from 2007.

List your operating system, version of Firefox, any extensions you use, if any, etc...
