    I just noticed today, the first day I used Expose, that while running Firebird there is a small window that Expose labels "hidden." I'm unable to maximize this window or discover any other information about it.

    Anybody have any ideas as to what it is/what it does?

    I hate to bump up an old thread but I just switched to Mozilla Firebird as my default browser and upon doing some research, the hidden window supposedly has something to do with Firebird's window management system.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    It's been there since the Mozilla 5.0 core was started. I haven't seen the source lately, but I believe they're using it to store some JavaScript housekeeping variables.

    Hopefully they'll be able to hide it in the future as while not a problem, it is a nag with Exposè in Panther.
