    is there a keystroke to hide only one open window of firefox or textedit for example? or to only bring one to the front? often I want only one window while referencing another program, but if that window is under other open windows, i don't see a way to switch to JUST that window without other ones coming to the front and getting in the way of what i'm trying to reference. i could minimize the larger one, but I'd rather not have it cluttering up my dock. any suggestions? thanks!

    I wish there was a way to do this. This is one of the few times I'll actually minimize a window instead of hiding it. Other times, I use combinations of <CMD>-<TAB> and <CMD>-<`> to get the windows I want in the foreground. I'm not sure if you're aware of cmd-` but that may help you. It allows you to cycle through all the windows of the program that has focus. Really though, I try not to have multiple windows of one program up at one time instead relying on program tabs and what not.
