    Its probably something I missed...but I will ask for my sanity.

    I know on my late-08 macbook pro (10.5.6), i can double click on a browser page to minimize. i was pretty sure i could do this on my late 07 macbook, but now following a hard drive replacement and Snow Leopard install, I can't minimize firefox or safari via double clicking on the top of the browser. like i said i was pretty sure i could do this before.. but the macbook pro has been mine for a while, so i don't know 100% if im dreaming that or not.

    i checked the preferences for both and i didn't see a setting to be either it stopped working with snow leopard, or it never worked on the late-07 models....
    can someone help? i kinda miss that....

    Go to System Preferences > Appearance. Check the box to "Double-click a window's title bar to minimize".

    Note this works for all applications, not just browsers.
